† Chinese Valentine's Day †

The Chinese Valentine's Day is on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month in the Chinese calendar. It is said that if you raise your head in evening on this day and gaze at the stars, you will find something romantic going on in the sky. That is, on this evening, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu will meet on a bridge of magpies across the Milky Way. Chinese grannies will remind children that they would not be able to see any magpies on that evening because all the magpies have left to form a bridge in the heavens with their wings.
