get together gather ……, family reunion
inchina, mid-autumn day is considered to be a symbol of family reunion. on this day, all the family members gather together at home to celebrate this special occasion. last year, i could not celebrate the festival with my family because i was in university. however, this special day left a deep impression on me.
i still remember the atmosphere of that evening. all the students who could not go back home assembled in our classroom, having a party to celebrate this traditional festival. we tried our best to show our own enthusiasm. as an ethnic minority, i performed a peacock dance, which received warm applause. after the two-hour party, we went out to the playground and sat together to appreciate the moon because it is a tradition on mid-autumn day. we ate moon cakes, played cards, and listened to romantic poems recited by one of our classmates. in that harmonious atmosphere, nobody felt lonely or homesick even though we were far away from our homes
thanks to our classmates, i experienced such a colorful and interesting mid-autumn day at my university. thus, i learned to value all the festivals i spent during my university life.
