Let's share festivals which are originated from our hometown/birthplace. I am interested in different festivals and wanna know more about their celebrations~


For HongKong, the Mid-Autumn Festival is approaching. It is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calender every year. On that night we would carry lanterns, have gatherings with our fds/relatives and have mooncakes under the big full moon. We'll have a day off on the day after.

thx for your sharing. It's definitely a day worth celebrating. It saved lives and avoided a tragedy.

Well in England on November the 5th we'll be celebrating Bonfire Night, which acknowledges the failed plot to blow up the House of Lords (parliament). Guy Fawkes is the main figure associated with the group who organised the plot, known as the 'Gunpowder plot'. This all took place in 1605.


We basically spend the night setting off lots of fireworks- we often organise parties where friends and families come over to our hourse, or alternatively there are often public fireworks displays.
