Recent several days have seen broad coverage made by the CCTV upon the definition of homesickness, when millions of Chinese people are expected to rush for their homes to jointly celebrate the annual Mid-Autumn Festival with their family members in the 3-day holiday.
For their part, the nationals across the country have voiced their unique definitions of homesickness in the TV coverage.
For instance, some people say that they just want to return to their home, eat moon cakes and other foods with their old parents, and recall beautiful memories of celebrations on the occasion in their childhood. Meanwhile, others will simply walk around their hometown, check local development, and relieve how they used to live here.
To sum up, a majority of Chinese people have defined the annual festival as a special occasion to reunite with their old parents, other family members and friends back in homewtown, return their hometown to feel local changes, and find opportunities to relieve beautiful memories in the past.
For me, the most beautiful way to celebrate the festival is to sit in the little courtyard of my hometown, talk with my parents, listen to the mighty sound of insects and watch the bright moon at the tranquil night. Yet, all of these are just alive in my memory and can never be traced back again.
