Yesterday is our QIXI FESTIVAL,this is a romantic festival,The seventh day of the seventh month in the Chinese lunar calendar is known as Qixi Festival, or Chinese Lovers' Day and there is an old story behind it. A long long time ago, there was a poor cowherd, Niulang. He fell in love with Zhinu,“the Girl Weaver". But the couple was separated by a wide swollen river in the sky and can only meet once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month. This sad love story, with traditional values and customs from it, has passed down from generation to generation. In ancient times, young women performed certain activities on this special festival, such as threading a needle with their holiday best while facing the moon to pray for various kinds of ingenuity and celebrate the annual meeting of the cowherd and the Girl Weaver. Nowadays Chinese people no longer hold such activities. But they still regard it as Chinese Lovers' Day when loves express true affections to each other and pray that their love reign as long as the earth endures.
