Happy Chinese Valentines Day!

Chinese Valentines Day is the 7th day of the the 7th lunar month, and the western calendar equivalent of that is ... tada!.. today!

Chinese Valentines commemorates love for your partner as well as love for family.

Niu Lang and Zhi Nu, a human cowherd and a divine daughter of the Jade Emperor, were separated. One has to live at the star Vega, while the other at star Altair. Once a year, during the 7th day of the 7th month, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu are allowed to meet again. It is said that the couple's 2 children live on 2 the stars beside Altair, awaiting the day when they get to be with their mother again.

Be thankful you have your partner, children and parents, no matter how far away they are. Greet them a happy valentines day and show them you love and appreciate them.

If you want some Chinese Valentines Day coloring pictures, we have some in the festivals section.
