Chinese Valentine’s Day
- Aug 17, 2018 -

The Double Seventh Festival (Qixi Festival) is one of Chinese traditional festivals, and also

known as a Chinese Valentine's Day. It's based on a romantic legend about a weaver girl and an ox herd.

It falls on the 7th day of the 7th Chinese lunar month. In 2018 that's August 17 

(Friday).There is no public holiday.


How China's Valentine's Day Is Celebrated Now

Double Seven Festival is the most romantic of traditional Chinese festivals, and since China's globalization it's 

become known as "Chinese Valentine's Day".

Now people usually celebrate Chinese Valentine's Day by giving flowers, chocolates, and other presents to 

their sweethearts, instead of doing the traditional customs.

Though in Chinese cities, Western Valentine's Day is now more popular than Qixi with young people, the romantic

legend of Niulang and Zhinü has taken deep root in the hearts of Chinese people. It probably always will be 

told from one generation to the next...
