August 17 marks the Qixi Festival, the Chinese equivalent of Valentine’s Day. Based on a myth that dates as far back as 2,600 years, it celebrates the romantic legend of two lovers – the weaver and the cowherd – whose enduring love was forbidden; they were sent to opposite sides of the Silver River or, as it’s better known, the Milky Way. The story goes that, on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, a flock of magpies would form a magical bridge to reunite the lovers for just one day a year.
