Held on the 9th day of the 9th lunar month, Double Ninth Festival (重阳节)is also called “Old People’s Day” “老人节”.
In Chinese, nine is regarded as the number of Yang (which means masculine as opposed to Yin which is feminine). The ninth day of the ninth month is the day that has two Yang numbers, and ‘chong’ in Chinese means double which is how the name Chongyang was created. It is believed that Double Ninth Festival was an auspicious day. This is the day Chinese pray for health and longevity of the elderly.
