迟来的祝福:中秋节快乐!

祭拜月亮妈

说到中秋节,在现代人的脑海里都是浮现出月饼,灯笼和嫦娥。可是,少数的人还是知道其实今天是月娘妈的生日。
今天,在出席朋友举办的中秋晚会时,我碰到了这一户人家。他们正在祭拜月亮哦!这现象已经是很罕见了,这也是我第一次遇见。这户人家在桌上摆了些祭品,然后在桌前过着三个灯笼,过后在桌子的边缘点了很多只蜡烛形成“L”形。
相应的,有月亮妈必然就会有太阳公。太阳公的生日是在农历三月十九。顺便一提,八月十五也是福德正神的千秋哦,也就是我们所谓的大伯公生日啦。

Whenever ones talk about Mid-Autumn Festival, the first thing that come to our mind is mooncake, lantern and Chang-Er. Yet, there are still some minority of the people know that today is actually the birthday of the Moon Goddess.
Today, when I was attending a Mid-Autumn Festival party organised by my friend, I have met with this family. Guess what? They are praying the moon in front of their house! Nowadays, this phenomenon is rarely seen as not many people practice this praying anymore. This is the first time I have seen one. This family has set some foods and fruit on the table. They light up 3 lantern in front of the table and then put lots of candles on the edge of the table to make a 'L' shape.
When there is a birthday of the moon, there will be a birthday of the sun. The sun birthday falls on the 19th days of the third lunar moon. One extra thing is, today is actually the birthday of Tua Pek Kong as well.
