Chinese Festivals – Qixi

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. Qixi festival is also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day and is one of the most important shopping festivals for luxury brand goods companies in China.
