It is said that in ancient times, there were ten suns in the sky. They were all the sons of the Oriental emperor. The ten suns lived on the edge of the East China Sea with their mother and the wife of the Heavenly Emperor. She often bathes her ten children in the East China Sea, the easternmost place in the world. After taking a bath, let them perch on a big tree like birds. Because the image center of each sun is a bird, the tree has become their home. Nine suns perch on the shorter branches, and the other sun perches on the treetops.

When the dawn needs morning light, the sun perched in the treetops will sit in a two wheeled cart, cross the sky, irradiate the world, and spread light and heat all over every corner of the world. The ten suns change every day and take turns to be on duty. They are in good order and all things in the world are in harmony. People live happily and harmoniously on the earth. People, like neighbors and friends, live together, plough at sunrise and rest at sunset, and live a happy and happy life. People and animals can live in harmony. At that time, people were grateful that the sun had brought them time, light and joy. They often kowtowed to the sky and worshipped.

However, such a long time, the ten suns feel bored. They want to travel around the sky together, and they think it must be very interesting. So, when dawn came, the ten suns climbed onto the two wheeled vehicle and embarked on the journey across the sky. This time, people and everything on the earth can’t stand it. Ten Suns are like ten big fire groups. The heat they released together scorched the earth and burned many people and animals.

The forest was on fire, and all the trees, crops and houses were burned to ashes. Those people and animals who did not die in the fire, pigs and wolves ran around, frantically looking for places to escape from the disaster and life-saving water and food.

The river dried up, the sea dried up, all the fish died, and the monsters in the water climbed onto the shore to steal food. Crops and orchards withered and charred, and the food supply for people and livestock was cut off. People are either burned alive by the heat of the sun or eaten by wild animals. People are struggling in the sea of fire disaster, praying for God’s gift!

At this time, there was a young and handsome hero named Hou Yi. He was a divine archer. His arrow skills were superior and he hit 100 times. He was summoned by the emperor of heaven to receive the mission of driving away the sun. When he saw that people were living in the fire, he couldn’t bear it, so he secretly decided to shoot off the redundant nine suns to help people escape from the sea of suffering.

So Hou Yi climbed 99 mountains, crossed 99 rivers, crossed 99 canyons, came to the east coast, climbed a mountain, and at the foot of the mountain was the boundless sea. Hou Yi opened the bow and crossbow with a force of ten thousand kilograms, mounted a powerful arrow with a weight of one thousand kilograms, aimed at the hot sun in the sky, and shot with a swish. The first sun was shot down.

Hou Yi drew back his crossbow, put on his sharp arrow, and shot away with a buzzing sound. At the same time, he shot down two suns. Now, there are seven suns in the sky staring at their red eyes. Hou Yi felt that the sun was still scorching and fired a third arrow. The arrow was powerful enough to shoot down four suns. The other suns trembled and whirled. That’s it, Hou Yi connected

He shot his arrows at the sun one by one. Without a single shot, he shot nine suns. The nine suns hit by the arrow died one after another. Their feathers fell to the ground, and their light and heat disappeared little by little. Until there was only one sun left, he was so scared that he continued to contribute light and heat to the earth and all things honestly according to Hou Yi’s instructions.

Since then, the sun has risen from the seaside in the east every day and set from the mountain in the west at night, warming the world, keeping everything alive, and making people live and work in peace and contentment.

Hou Yi set up an unparalleled Kung Fu, which was respected and loved by the people. However, the emperor of heaven blamed him for killing the son of the emperor of heaven, and demoted him and Chang’e to mortals. Many people with lofty ideals come here to learn arts. The treacherous, cunning and evil minded pengmeng also mixed in.

Hou Yi felt sorry for Chang’e. In addition to passing on his skills and hunting, he stayed with his wife all day long and said, “the heaven is highly hierarchical, and people on earth are also at ease. However, mortals will die. If they want to live forever, they must cross the weak water, turn over the volcano, climb the Kunlun Mountains, and ask the queen mother of the West for the elixir of immortality.”

With his unparalleled skills and superhuman will, Hou Yi climbed up the cliffs and reached the top of Kunlun mountain through the burning mountains and weak waters. The mother of the Western King admired Hou Yi’s deeds and sympathized with his sufferings. However, there was only one immortal pill left. She said: “the immortal pill was made from the immortal fruit that is made of immortality. Immortality blooms once every 3000 years, and bears fruit once every 3000 years. It takes another 3000 years to refine the medicine. Now there is only one pill left. Both of them can live forever if they share it. One person can become an immortal if he eats it alone.”

Hou Yi came back to discuss with his wife Chang’e about finding a lucky day to share food, and temporarily gave the immortal medicine to Chang’e for safekeeping. Chang’e hid the medicine in the treasure box on the dressing table, but Peng Meng saw it.

When Hou Yi led his disciples out hunting, the sinister pengmeng pretended to be ill and stayed. Shortly after Hou Yi led the others to leave, Peng Meng, armed with a sword, broke into the backyard of the inner house and forced Chang’e to hand over the elixir of immortality. Chang’e knew that she was not Peng Meng’s opponent. When she was in danger, she made a quick decision, turned to open the treasure box, took out the undead medicine and swallowed it.

Chang’e swallowed the medicine and immediately floated off the ground, rushed out of the window and flew to the sky. Because Chang’e was worried about her husband, she flew to the nearest moon and became an immortal.

In the evening, Hou Yi returned home, and the maids cried about what had happened during the day. Hou Yi was shocked and angry. He drew his sword to kill the villain. Pengmeng had already escaped. Hou Yi was so angry that he beat his chest, stamped his feet and shouted loudly. Grief stricken Hou Yi looked up at the night sky and called his wife’s name. At this time, he was surprised to find that today’s moon was extraordinarily bright and bright, and there was a shaking figure that looked like Chang’e.

Hou Yi hurried to send someone to Chang’e’s favorite backyard garden, put a incense table, put her favorite honey and fresh fruit, and offered a distant sacrifice to Chang’e who was in the Moon Palace.

After hearing the news that Chang’e became an immortal, people set up incense tables under the moon to pray for good luck and peace to the kind-hearted Chang’e.

Since then, the custom of worshipping the moon on the Mid Autumn Festival has spread among the people.
