The Chinese "Love Date," Valentine's Day

Jan. - Mar. 1996
Fairy Tales

In my country, there are many festival days.  In Chinese, the "Love Date"is a legend about a man and woman's love story.
   A long time ago, there was a woman weaver and cattleman.  They felt very deeply attached to each other.  But they gave up their work.  So God was very angry.   Because they were deities, they couldn't be together.  So God must allow them every year to be able to see each other.  He does that with a bridge of stars in the sky.
   So, the stars will leave a good name, for a hundred generations, until today.  Today many lovers go out to eat.
