Beiiing’s Second Annual Chinese Valentine’s Day Festival was held in Tongzhou Grand Canal yesterday, a day before the Chinese Valentine’s Day. Thousands of singles attended to participate in a massive blind date party, as well as numerous elderly people, who desperately attempted to auction off and find spouses for their own beloved, single grandchildren. Love is in the air.
Today marks Qixi Festival, an annual holiday that falls on the seventh day of the seventh month on the lunar calendar and is likened to the Chinese Valentine’s Day.
