How To Celebrate The Chinese Valentine’s Day
This Chinese Valentine's Day, honour the romantic annual union of the mythical characters Niulang and Zhinü from the Han Dynasty by participating in a number of traditional activities with your loved ones. These activities are meant to commemorate the mythical characters' union during the Han Dynasty. We have compiled a list of ideas for you on how to enjoy the Qixi Festival, which includes the following:
- In the evening of Qixi, the most common custom for women was to demonstrate their skills (dexterity).
- A table of offerings had to be set up for the weaving fairy to be worshipped. Young women gathered around the table in the evening to display their needlework, gaze at Vega, and pray for a nice husband and a happy life. After that, they'd stay up till the wee hours of the morning playing games or listening to poetry.
- Children gathered wildflowers and attached them to the horns of oxen as a tribute to the mythical ox.
