Happy Chinese Valentine’s Day 2013 – All Shall be well,Jack Shall have Jill

Chinese Valentine’s Day is on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month in the Chinese calendar. And it falls on August 13 in Chinese solar calendar in the year of 2013. Valentine’s Day is known as Qixi Festival (Chinese: 七夕节; literally “The Night of Sevens”), also known as Magpie Festival, falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month on the Chinese calendar; thus its name. It inspired Tanabata (七夕) in Japan, Chilseok (칠석) in Korea, and Thất Tịch in Vietnam. It has sometimes been called Chinese Valentine’s Day (Chinese: 情人節; pinyin: Qíng rén jié) since the late 1990s, which is, strictly speaking, an inaccurate portrait of the festival.
