In China and parts of East Asia, August will certainly be remembered in 2022 for the annual Qixi Festival, which is celebrated today Thursday, August 4 in 2022.
Qixi Festival is a traditional festival celebrated in China, Taiwan, Singapore and other parts of Asia.
It celebrates the annual union of Zhinü, the weaving goddess, and Niulang dying-the theme of the traditional Chinese folk tale of the love between the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl.
In ancient times, young women would pray, sew, and paint their nails during the Kixi period as part of worshiping the god of prayer, Zhinu.
Traditionally, Qiaoguo, a confection made from butter, flour, sugar and sesame, is eaten. The site says that it is still enjoyed in the Eastern part of China, such as Shanghai and Shandong
