AsianDate aims to spread plenty of luck across the website from member to member this October 21. The internationally acclaimed online dating service is celebrating China’s Double Ninth Festival, an event believed to bring luck and happiness to people. The popular festival offers an insight into yet another intriguing aspect of Chinese culture and traditions.
AsianDate has been encouraging members across the world to celebrate Double Ninth Festival so that they can learn more about China, its culture, festivals and traditions. The event is also known as the Chrysanthemum Festival or the Chongyang Festival. Women wear chrysanthemum flowers in their hair or hang them on windows and doors to ward off evil. Men consume Chrysanthemum wine on this day as part of the extensive celebrations.
It is held on October 21 but traditionally it is always observed on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month. In Chinese culture, the number 9 represents Yang. On the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, both day and month are Yang characters and that is why the festival is known as the Double Ninth Festival.
AsianDate.com is sharing information about this important Chinese festival with members so that they too can participate in the celebrations and enjoy all the luck that the festival brings with it.
The Double Ninth Festival is also associated with paying homage to the departed. Families visit the ancestral graves, clean them and repaint the inscriptions, and lay out a spread of food loved by their ancestors. This is a symbolic gesture to honor the memories of departed souls. Climbing high mountains, making Chongyang cakes and burning incense sticks also form part of the tradition associated with this festival.
AsianDate expects a large number of members to communicate with Chinese singles on this day using their high-tech and popular features like Live Chat and Call Me.
