However, the goddess threw out a hair clasp and turned it into a big river, stopped the cowherd ’s pace. Every July 7th, the cowherd ’s admitted to meet his wife a time and then, all the magpies would fly to the river and build into a bridge for the couple. So, people named the day Qixi festival to commemorate their love.

However, modern people regard it more like a shopping day or party time. They declare it ‘the Eastern Valentine’s Day’ and appear males to buy gifts for their girlfriends or wives —— so they can earn much more money. Qixi festival gradually lost its original meaning. Actually, it’s a festival for girls. In the ancient time, girls celebrated it for a lovely wish, making themselves more ingenious. They would put a spider in a box and observe its net the other day to discover any inspiration for spinning. Or, they would stain their fingers by beautiful flowers, wishing to become more pretty.

I love Qixi festival because it is full of mystery and romance, and furthermore, it’s a festival for our females. I hope more and more people can read the touching love story and keep in mind the meaning of Qixi festival.
