中秋节马上就要到了,

在大家阖家团圆吃月饼的时候,

是不是应该先学习一下与中秋有关的表达呢?

A mooncake is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival is about lunar appreciation and Moon watching, and mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival. The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the four most important Chinese festivals.

月饼是中国烘焙食品,通常在中秋节期间享用。中秋节是赏月的节日,月饼被认为是不可或缺的美食。月饼是在朋友之间或在家庭聚会上庆祝节日时提供的。中秋节是中国四个最重要的节日之一。


Typical mooncakes are round pastries, measuring about 10 cm in diameter and 3–4 cm thick, and are commonly eaten in the Southern and Northern Chinese regions. A rich thick filling usually made from red bean or lotus seed paste is surrounded by a thin, 2–3 mm (approximately 1/8th of an inch) crust and may contain yolks from salted duck eggs. Today, it is customary for businessmen and families to present them to their clients or relatives as presents, helping to fuel a demand for high-end mooncakes.
