The present Doodle praises the Qixi Festival, otherwise called Qixi Valentine’s Day, a festival of adoration saw in Taiwan every year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month.
The occasion follows its underlying foundations to an old Chinese story of taboo sentiment. The legend recounts a human bovine herder named Niúláng and a pixie named Zhinü–the girl of the goddess of paradise who experienced passionate feelings for and marry stealthily. At the point when Zhinü’s mom found that her little girl had hitched a human man, she prohibited their affection and requested Zhinü come back to paradise.
Niúláng endeavored to discover his better half in paradise, yet the goddess made a waterway between them, referred to today as the Milky Way. Moved by Niúláng’s shock, a great many jaybirds framed an extension over the stream to rejoin the couple, a scene reconsidered in the Doodle work of art. Thus, the goddess consented to permit the star-crossed sweethearts to meet once per year on this day.
To pay tribute to the pair’s yearly get-together, individuals across Taiwan take this day to praise the ones they love.
Upbeat Qixi Festival!
