|Make a wish at the sight of Total Lunar Eclipse|
|Aug 27, 2007 23:24|
|When I was a little kid, my grandma told me that your wishes would come true, if you made the wishes at the sight of a falling meteor. |
Once I saw the lunar eclipse, I asked my grandma :" can the wishes come true if I made them right now". So I made several wishes,some realized, but some others never. Several years later, when I asked my grandma why my dream didn't come true. My grandma told me it was because at that time a total lunar eclipse occured, and a dog from heaven had eaten up the moon.So your dream will never come true.
Gradually, as I grew up. I found that what my grandma said was a ancient Chinese Myth about lunar eclipse.
Anyway, tonight ( at 19:30--20:30 Beijing Time) will eyewitness anothet total lunar eclipse. I will make several wishes again despite that they will realize or not. Wish and dream are beautiful. So are the myths. Will you make a wish.

|Make a wish tonight, I hope it will come true tommorrow. Any other stories about lunar eclipse. The phenomenon of " Total Lunar Eclipse" is due to that "the moon was eaten up by a dog from heaven". Very interesting folklore.|

|But it seems most of us could not oberserve the great scene!|
It is 19:30--20:30 Beijing Time. It is still daytime! The light of sun will hide the sight of Total Lunar Eclipse.

|My grandma told me it was because at that time a total lunar eclipse occured, and a dog from heaven had eaten up the moon.So your dream will never come true. Good explanation. Thus, you should make wishes when the falling stars appearing in the sky and then your wishes will come true. Haha....|

|the lunar eclipse is viewed as a bad omen for those believe in the stars... I think the Full Moon is viewed also by the Chinese to mean fulfillment, its total eclipse must be the worst for the wishes then|
