Today’s Double Seventh Festival
In the Chinese cities, the Western Valentine’s Day is more favored than the Double Seventh Festival by young people. They spend the latter as the Valentine’s Day. Although some traditional customs have been changed or been lost, the legend of Niu Lang and Zhi Nu is still passed down from generation to generation. Like the presents of Valentine’s Day, flowers and chocolates are also the popular ones.

Whatever way the festival is spent, great love is expressed between the young.
