For Mid-Autumn Festival this year, one grandpa decided to give his sweetheart the moon.
The adorable scene occurred last night near Houhai in Beijing. According to one witness on Weibo, the old man had promised his wife long ago that each Mid-Autumn Festival they would go out and gaze at the full moon together.
This year, because of all the bad weather in the forecast, he was worried about fulfilling his commitment to his beloved, so he decided to pull a Jimmy Stewart, secretly preparing a giant inflatable moon to surprise his wife with.
Seems like it worked.
Netizens on Weibo were overcome with emotion by the grandpa’s love for his wife and for his youthful romanticism. They also wondered how that moon managed to get all the way from Fuzhou to Beijing.
The moon now seems to have been secured.
