    A terrible person wanting help again!Sorry, please help! >

    Do we need an article "the" before festivals as in Mid Autumn Festival or Dragon Boat Festival?

    The sentence here is:

    Here are some of the most popular legendary stories of < the ???> Mid Autumn Festival.

    Do we need "the" in the above sentence? Thanks again! T_T & @_@

    Yes, you need the definite article (the) there. You are talking about a specific festival when you talk about the Mid-Autumn Festival.

    :D
