Today (22nd) is the seventh day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar "Qixi", known as Chinese Valentine's Day, according to legend, because the cowherd and the weaver girl can only meet once a year on this day at the Queqiao, so when they meet again for a long time, they will inevitably shed "lovesick tears", so it is said that it will rain. This year's Qixi is affected by the southerly current, and there are also several "acacia rains", waiting for the sky to improve, and the observatory predicts to wait until next Sunday (27th).
Although Tiangong does not create beauty today, it does not damage the determination of the people to worship the "Seven Sisters (i.e. Weaver Girl)". Nearly 200 believers dressed in traditional costumes participated in the Qixi Festival to pray for good fortune and bow down to Huang Zhongxian and bow down to Seven Sisters.
