What is the Double Seventh Festival?

Double Seventh Festival, which falls on the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar, is a traditional festival full of romance that normally falls in August of the Gregorian calendar. This festival is held in mid-summer when the grass and trees are bright green. At night when the sky is full of stars, people contemplate the Milky Way stretching from north to south. In each of its sides, there is a bright star. Their names are the “cowherd” and “Maiden greeting”, and above them there is a beautiful story that has been passed from generation to generation.
