From a very young age, Van Nhu from the southern province of Dong Nai, was excited to watch animated unicorn dance in the drumming sounds. Fascinated by the unicorn performance, yet, the 8-year-old girl never had a chance to watch it in person.

Nhu draws the picture, wishing she could once join the Mid-Autumn parade while watching unicorn dance and singing under the moonlight. She also has her grandfather hand-make colorful star-shaped lanterns, which makes her Mid-Autumn celebration this year more meaningful.

Nhu also dreams of a family gathering, when all members embracing the full moon together, enjoying mooncakes, fruits and chatting happily on the Mid-Autumn night. The 7-month-old cousin who Nhu really loves also appears in Nhu’s picture.
