Have you ever heard about Chinese Valentine’s Day? Are you interested in Chinese Valentine’s Day? On the contrary, Valentine’s Day is known to everyone in the world as a day where love is celebrated differently in china. They do not celebrate the way we do and on the same date but in a different way. Chinese Valentine’s Day is the day when couples celebrate love and affection for each other. Just as in other parts of the world, Valentine’s Day is celebrated by everyone.
Furthermore, in China, Valentine’s Day is called the Qixi festival and it is also known as the Qiqiao festival. It is the celebration of the annual meeting of the cowherd and weaver girl. The Chinese Valentine’s Day was founded from the worship of natural astrology and it is the celebration of the birthday of the seventh elder sister held on the seventh night of the seventh lunar New Year month that is why it is called the Qixi festival. A lot of people think Chinese Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the same month and date as the normal Valentine’s Day celebration in the rest of the world. Unfortunately, it’s not, the Qixi festival is different from the Valentine’s Day normal date.
What is the Chinese Valentine’s Day Date?
On the contrary, the Chinese Valentine’s Day date as said earlier is different from the normal Valentine’s Day date known to other people around the world. Valentine’s Day is mostly celebrated on February 14 but Chinese Valentine’s Day is not. Because china follows the lunar calendar, their valentine’s is different from ours just like the way their new year is different from ours. Chinese Valentine’s Day is celebrated on the 4th of august every lunar new year. It is just like we do on February 14, on the Qixi festival, the Chinese gives and receive gifts from their loved ones.
