The word “秋Autumn”（qiū）today looks like 秋🍂= 禾 🌾+ 火🔥 Autumn = Grain + Fire
💡But, do you know, 3000 years ago, the word actually looked like a locust on fire! 🔥🔥🔥
🦗Locust plagues are natural agricultural disasters often encountered before harvest. Locust has phototaxis; thus, whenever a locust plague comes, farmers will light up a fire and let the locusts rush to the light to die. Locusts are active in autumn. Therefore, people use the image of locusts on fire to refer to autumn.🍂

Three or four (if Mid-Autumn Festival is near National Day) days of paid holiday are given, and the surrounding weekends are re-arranged so that workers in Chinese companies always have seven or eight continuous days of holiday. These national holidays were first started by the government for the PRC's National Day in 1999 and are primarily intended to help expand the domestic tourism market and improve the national standard of living, as well as allowing people to make long-distance family visits. The Golden Weeks are consequently periods of greatly heightened travel activity. .
