媽媽：肚子餓了吧？ 要不要吃月餅？Mama: Betty, are you hungry? Would you like to eat a moon cake?
蓓蒂：好哇。 我要豆沙餡兒的。Betty: OK. I’d Like one stuffed with bean paste.
媽媽：奶奶知道你愛吃豆沙口味的，特別多寄了幾個來。Mama: Grandma knows that you love bean paste moon cakes, so she sent some extra ones.
蓓蒂：一想到奶奶，月餅好像就特別地香甜可口。Betty: Moon cakes seem to more tasty at the thought of Grandma.
媽媽：不能全家團聚賞月，過節的興致就少了許多。Mama: If the whole family can’t get together to enjoy the moon, there’s just no holiday spirit.
Betty: actually, the moon is the same every month. Why do we only celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival?
媽媽:因爲秋天是收穫的季節，所以在中秋節慶祝豐收。Mama: Mid-autumn is the harvest season, so the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrate a fruitful harvest.
蓓蒂：我還記得奶奶曾經講過關于嫦娥的故事，真好聽。Betty: I remember Grandma told me the story of Chang-O. That was really a good story.
