What's the "Double Ninth Festival"?

In the ancient Chinese classic, the I Ching, nine is called the largest "Yang number"; on the ninth day of the ninth month of the lunar calendar, the two nines coincide, both being Yang numbers, so this day is called "Chongyang", which This is the origin of Chongyang Festival. Chong Yang Festival is also known as the Climbing Festival. On this day, people climb up high and look far away, thinking of their loved ones. As the poem says, "Whenever there is a festival, we miss our relatives more than ever".

In ancient times, folk had the custom of climbing high to pray for good fortune, worshipping the gods and ancestors and drinking a feast to pray for longevity at the Chrysanthemum Festival. Nowadays, it has been passed down to the present day, with the addition of connotations such as respect for the elderly. The two important themes of today's the Double Ninth Festival activities are to climb high to enjoy autumn and to be grateful to the elderly.

What is the story of the “Double Ninth Festival”?

The Double Ninth Festival comes from a Taoist story of the immortals:

In the Eastern Han Dynasty, there was a rural boy named Huan Jing in Runan County, with two parents and a wife and children. Although the day is not good, half dishes and half food can get by. Who knows the unfortunate thing came. Both sides of the Ru River caused by the plague, every family fell ill, the corpse everywhere no one buried. This year, Huan Jing's parents also died of disease. When Huan Jing was a child, he heard the adults say: "There is a plague demon living in the River Ru, every year to come out to the earth to walk. Wherever it went, it brought the plague to wherever it went. Huan Jing was determined to visit teachers and friends to learn the skills, to fight the plague demon, to eliminate harm for the people. Hearing that there was a great Taoist named Fei Changfang living in the southeastern mountains, he packed his bags and set off to the mountains to learn from his teacher. Fei Changfang gave Huan Jing a demon subduing blue dragon sword. Huan Jing get up early and sleep late, wearing the stars and the moon, day and night to practice away. In the blink of an eye another year, that day Huan Jing was practicing sword, Fei Changfang came to the front and said: "September 9 this year, the River Ru plague demon to come out again. You hurry back to your hometown to help the people to eliminate the evil. I give you a packet of dogwood leaves, a bottle of chrysanthemum wine, so that your hometown fathers and mothers to climb high to avoid the disaster."

 

Huan Jing returned to his hometown, gathered the villagers. The words of Daxian to the group. September 9, he led his wife and children, the villagers and fathers up a nearby mountain. The dogwood leaves each share a piece, said so carry with you, the plague demon dare not come near. He also poured out the chrysanthemum wine, each pecked a mouthful, saying that drinking chrysanthemum wine, not to catch the plague disease. He arranged the villagers, and returned home with his demon-squashing blue dragon sword, sitting alone in the house, waiting for the plague demon to come to battle to subdue the demon. Not long after, only to hear the River Rui roar, strange wind whirl up. The plague demon out of the water and walked up the shore, through the village, walking thousands of string of thousands of homes but not a single person, suddenly looked up to see people are in the high mountains gathered. It scampered to the bottom of the hill, only to feel the wine stinging nose, cornelian rush lung, do not dare to climb close, and turned back to the village. I saw a man sitting in a house. On a roar forward to lunge. Huan Jing as soon as he saw the plague demon pounced, hastily dance sword to meet the battle. Fought a few rounds, the plague demon war he could not, pulled his legs and ran, Huan Jing "whoosh" to throw the demon-surrendering blue dragon sword, only to see the sword flashing cold light to the plague demon chase, through the heart and lungs to the plague demon down to the ground. After that, the people on both sides of the river, no longer suffer from the plague demon.
