七夕节英文介绍 Double Seventh Festival
Qixi Festival, also known as Qiqiao Festival, Qiqiao Festival or Qijie Birthday, originated in China. It is a traditional festival in Chinese areas and some East Asian countries affected by Han culture. Women beg for wisdom and ingenuity from Vega in the courtyard on the night of the seventh or sixth day of the seventh lunar month, so it is called Qiqiao Festival. It originated from the worship of nature and women’s needles, and was later given the legend of Cowherd and weaver girl to make it a symbol of love. It has become one of the four major folk love legends in China. On May 20, 2006, Qixi Festival was listed in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China. It is now considered as “Chinese Valentine’s Day”. Xihe Qiaoqiao Festival has been inherited for more than 1800 years. It is one of the most complete and historic “Qixi” festival folk activities in China. In 2008, “Qiqiao Festival” was added to the list of the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage protection. In 2007, “Qixi tribute” was listed as a list of intangible cultural heritage protection in Guangdong. In 2014, the fourth batch of state-level non heritage items was selected for Yunxi Qixi Festival.
