Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 中秋节快乐 (zhōng qiū jié kuài lè)! 中秋节 (zhōng qiū jié) is made of these characters: 中 (zhōng) - middle, as in 中间 (zhōng jiān) 秋 (qiū) - autumn, as in 秋天 (qiū tiān) 节 (jié) - holiday, as in 节日 (jié rì)
Ask a Chinese person this question: 你一般怎么过中秋节? (nǐ yì bān zěn me guò zhōng qiū jié) How do you normally celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival?
And you will likely hear one of the below traditional responses: 吃月饼 (chī yuè bǐng) - eat mooncakes 吃团圆饭 (chī tuán yuán fàn) - eat a reunion meal 赏月 (shǎng yuè) - admire the full moon 放假 (fàng jià) - have a vacation from work/school
