Few days back on Monday, I get a free newspaper, The Sun when I was about drove to work, then I saw an article on the front page... Lover's Day.
I was like... what the hell? What Lovers' Day was that? I thought Valentines Day is the world recognised lovers' day. Some people said that the 15th day of the first month in Chinese Lunar Calender (Chap Goh Meh) is the lovers' day in for Chinese. Now got another version of Lovers' Day? Oh no! Not again!!!
It was celebrated in Taipei, it says that Chinese Valentine's Day or Qi Xi (The Night of Sevens). Qi Xi is the celestial story of two lovers, a mortal cowherd and a fairy weaver, banished to opposite ends of the Milky Way by the Goddess of Heaven, who cross the bridge of magpies to meet the seventh day of the seventh lunar moon. Chinese mythology believes that during the night of Qi Xi, the two stars representing the lovers.
I wonder... wasn't it seventh lunar moon is the 'Hungry Ghost' month? Will it be dating with something spiritual? This is my first time heard about it in my life on this Lovers' Day. Is that the particular day you only love your lover? If you really love your lover, everyday can be Lovers' Day right?
So... I'm thinking now, what type of days do we still have to celebrate? Do this world got Rockers' Day? I'm looking forward for it... jeng jeng jengggggggggg®
What A Day?!
