September 24, 2018 – Mid-Autumn Festival 中秋节

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to members of the Canadian Chinese community on the occasion of The Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as The Moon Festival.

The festival dates back 3,000 years and is held on the 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese calendar.  The date parallels the Autumnal Equinox in the solar calendar, when the moon is at its roundest and fullest.

The festival is a time to enjoy the results of a bountiful harvest and admire the bright mid-autumn harvest moon, with family and friends.

Our city flourishes because of the diversity of people who have chosen to make Toronto their home. Toronto’s diverse communities share and celebrate their cultures and traditions with residents in every corner of our city.

 

As a city proud of its multiculturalism, each and every community plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.

詹嘉礼发表声明

在中秋节到来之际,我在此向加拿大华人社区成员表达我最美好的祝愿。
这个节日可以追溯到3000年前,是农历的8月15日。日期与阳历的秋分相应,是月亮最圆满的日子。
这个节日是与家人和朋友一起去享受丰收的成果及欣赏明亮的月亮的时刻。
我们的城市之所以繁荣,是因为多元化的人们选择了以多伦多为他们的家。在我们城市的每一个角落都有着多伦多不同的社区与居民分享和庆祝他们的文化和传统。
多元文化作为一个城市的骄傲,每个社区都给多伦多社会和文化景观增添活力。
