 Double Seven Festival

China's "Valentine's Day" is celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar, and is nicknamed the "Double Seven Festival". This holiday is related to the story of the Cowherd and the Weaving Girl. The Weaving Girl is a fairy from the heavens who has the opportunity to enter the earthly realm, meets a kind, hardworking cowherd, and marries him. When the Queen Mother of the West finds out, she captures the Weaving Girl, and takes her back to the heavens. The Cowherd chases after them, and when he almost catches up with his beloved Weaving Girl, the Queen Mother of the West takes the golden hairpin out of her hair, and slices it through the sky, creating a crevice in between the Cowherd and Weaving Girl, keeping them apart. At this point, a huge flock of pidgeons fly over, and use their bodies to form a bridge, allowing the Cowherd and Weaving Girl to walk across, and meet. Eventually, the Queen Mother of the West allows the lovers to meet each year on the seventh day of the seventh month, on the bridge of pidgeons.

农历正月十五是元宵节,又称为上元节、小正月、元夕或灯节,是春节之后的第一个重要节日,是中国也是汉字文化圈的地区和海外华人的传统节日之一。正月是农历的元月,古人把夜晚叫做“宵”,所以把一年中第一个月圆之夜正月十五称为元宵节。元宵之夜,大街小巷张灯结彩,人们赏灯、猜灯谜、吃元宵。到了清代,又增加了舞龙、舞狮、跑旱船、踩高跷、扭秧歌等“百戏”内容。元宵节将从除夕开始的庆祝活动推向又一个高潮。
