What Is Chinese Valentine’s Day?
Chinese Valentine’s Day is always held on the seventh day of the Chinese calendar’s seventh lunar month. The day commemorates a love story about a daughter of the Emperor of Heaven who was separated from her great love by being placed on a star called Vega. On the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, the two are reunited for one day.
This story has been passed down over hundreds of years. Of course, there are several different ways to tell the story, but the message tends to remain the same. It reveals the story of a true love that is desperate but passionate.
Celebrating Chinese Valentine’s Day
Today, many people celebrate Chinese Valentine’s Day by visiting a matchmaker in the hopes of finding love. The matchmaker works to find a suitable love interest for each of the individuals, ensuring that they are happy in their romantic futures.
Praying for true love and possibly upcoming marriage is also one way people remember this day. Those who long for a love of their own spend time wishing for romance in the near future, optimistically waiting.
Some women also celebrate the day by participating in domestic crafts. This is meant to show that they are prime candidates for marriage. It is also a way to commemorate the daughter in the tale that establishes the history of the holiday.
Finally, it is important to note that couples will often exchange gifts, letters, and other trinkets to show their love and affection for each other. Gifts often include flowers and chocolates, much like other romantic holidays. It is also customary to go out to dinner and generally just enjoy spending the day together.
