Happy Valentine's Day
14th. February 2011
The Chinese had just celebrated their version of Valentine's day on
the 7th day of the Chinese Lunar Calender.
I had not much idea about the more widely known Valentines day
which fall on every 14th February of each year except that
it was some what related to Christianity ...
However, I do know a little bit about the story of the Chinese
Valentines day ...
Story of a Cowherd and the Weaver Girl
It would begin with a love story for this day is about the 7th daughter
of Emperor of Heaven (天帝) and an orphaned cowherd (牛郎).
The Emperor separated them.
The 7th daughter was forced to move to the star Vega (织女星) and the
cowherd moved to the star Altair (牵牛星).
They are allowed to meet only once a year on the day of
7th day of the first lunar month of the year.
