Happy Chinese Valentine’s Day!
七夕快乐!
Most of the western world

is familiar with Valentine’s Day. This holiday falls on February 14th and is filled with candle lit dinners, chocolates, and flowers. However in China, it falls on a different day every year. Chinese Valentine’s Day celebrates a love story in Chinese mythology dating all the way back to the Han Dynasty.
There are many traditions associated with this festival, some of which are still observed in rural areas.
But, in many of China’s cities, these traditions are no longer practiced. Instead most couples celebrate Chinese Valentine’s Day the same way Westerners do on February 14th; with flowers, chocolates, and gifts.

    Valentine's Day hasn't been an important holiday in China. We even don't celebrate it,just know that mythology. That's why Valentine's Day is only considered as a western holiday,in a other word, China never has had a Valentine's Day.
