Happy 2012 Chinese Valentine’s Day

Chinese 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.
