The Qixi festival or double seventh festival is a traditional chinese festival which has been celebrated since the Han Dynasty. The festival is based on the forbidden romance between the goddess Zhinu and the ox herd Niulang. Separated in the night sky by the Milky Way, the two lovers are allowed to meet only once a year across a bridge of magpies on the evening of the Qixi Festival. This festival is celebrated on the 7th day of the 7th Chinese lunar month. It falls on August 25th this year.
