    A terrible person wanting help again! Much apologies! T_T

    Sorry for the endless requests but I would really like to know if we need an article "the" before festivals such as " Mid Autumn Festival or Dragon Boat Festival or any kinds of festivals"?


    In a sentence like this:
    Here are some of the most popular legendary stories of < the????> Mid Autumn Festival.

    Do we need "the" in the above sentence? Thanks

    Here are some of the most popular legendary stories about the Mid-Autumn Festival.

    It's a specific Festival, so use 'the'. :D

    By the way, it would be more than helpful if you could subject your posts with words like 'the' or 'Do I need to use 'the' or 'Does Festival need 'the'', and so on. Also, do you have a name or a cute word you'd like to go by besides Helped Wanted? It should be help wanted, no -ed. :D

    All the best,

    Thanks for your advice. The name " Helped Wanted" was typed in a rush when I did the registration. I've spotted it right after the registration was approved. I've tried to amend it but found that I was not able to do so! How tragic! T_T Is there any way I could amend it? Thanks ^o^

    I'd leave it and think of it as having character.
