I know it's not February 14!
But for the Chinese Calendar (August 16, 2010) is the seventh day of the seventh lunar month (July 7) and known to its name "Qi Xi" or "Seventh Eve". It's translated as Chinese Valentine's Day! According to the ancient story that handed down, there was a cowherd fell in love with a weaver girl. As usual, their love affair was forbidden. Since then, they only see each other up in the sky once a year when Weaver Girl Star (Vega from the West) and Cowherd Star (Altair) helped by Magpie to become their bridge. When you look up in the summer sky, you'll see the couple twinkling towards each other.
In Taiwan, the tradition still celebrated , like the couple will go to Lover's Temple to make a wish for their happiness, and that they will not end up like Vega and Altair. Roses and chocolates are all over, lots of activities like concerts, dates, and the like.
If you're here right now, you can feel that LOVE is in the air! ♥♥♥
