月宫仙子的神话传说

第一个是关于嫦娥与后裔的神话传说:
Long,long ago there was an excellent archer called Hou Yi.He was married to a beautiful woman called Chang’e.
很久很久以前,曾有一个非常杰出的弓箭手叫后裔,他与一名叫做嫦娥的美丽女子结为了夫妻。
High in the sky,there were 10 burning suns.The suns were too hot.They were scorching the earth.The plants,animals and people were struggling to stay alive.
那时,天空中有10个太阳炙烤着大地,天气热极了!植物、动物和人都痛苦不堪。
Hou Yi was tired of the suns and the heat,so he shot down nine of the suns,leaving just one to give light and enough heat.The people were saved.
厌倦了太阳与炎热的后裔,射下了其中的九个太阳,只留下一个来提供光和热,拯救了百姓。
The Queen was so thakful,that she gave Hou Yi a bottle of elixir.This potion would make him immortal.
王母娘娘非常感激,于是送给了后裔一瓶灵丹妙药,这种药会让他长生不老。
Hou Yi asked Chang’e to keep the potion safe until he needed it.
后裔让嫦娥帮他代为保管,直至他需要的时候。
One day,while Hou Yi was out hunting,a thief came to steal the elixir.
一天后裔外出打猎,有个小偷前来偷药。
Chang’e knew the only way to stop the thief from taking the elixir was for her drink it.

嫦娥意识到,她唯一能阻止的方法就是由她喝掉长生不老药。
The elixir made Chang’e float high into the sky.She kept floating until she reached the moon.
喝过长生不老药的嫦娥,飘到了天空中,飞往了月球。
When Hou Yi realised his wife was gone forever,he was devastated.
后裔得知妻子永久的离开后,他伤心欲绝。
Hou Yi made Chang’e favourite cakes and placed them on a table under the moon,hoping she would return to him.
后裔将嫦娥最喜欢吃的月饼摆在桌子上、放到了月亮下,希望妻子能够早日归来。
Since then,during the Moon Festival,people offer food to the moon,especially “mooncakes”.
自此,每年的中秋节,人们都会给月亮供奉月饼。

月饼:寄送密信的藏匿容器

关于中秋吃月饼,还有一个传说,故事发生在我国明朝:
An underground group led by Zhu Yuan Zang was determined to rid the country of Mongolian dominance. 
朱元璋领导的起义军计划起义来摆脱蒙古族的统治。
The moon cake was created to carry a secret message.
他们用月饼来传递密信。
When the cake was opened and the message read, an uprising was unleashed which successfully routed the Mongolians.
掰开月饼就可以找到里面的密信,起义军通过这种方式成功的发动了起义,赶走了元朝的统治者。
It happened at the time of the full moon, which, some say, explains why mooncakes are eaten at this time.
这场起义发生在八月十五之时,于是中秋节吃月饼的习俗便在民间传开来。
有关中秋节的神话传说版本多种多样,小朋友和家长们,你们听到的是哪个版本呢?你们又喜欢吃哪种口味的月饼呢?
