七 夕 节(qī xī jié),also named 乞 巧 节 (qǐ qiǎo jié) originated from China. It is a traditional festival for Chinese-speaking community and southeastern countries influenced by Chinese culture.  In the evening of lunar July 6th or 7th, women often pray for wisdom from 织女星(zhī nǚ xīnɡ),so came the name “乞巧”(qǐ qiǎo ). (乞means pray, 巧means wisdom) It was later regarded as a celebration of love because of spread of the legend “牛郎织女”(niú lánɡ zhī nǚ). 七 夕 节(qī xī jié) is the most romantic festival in China and is celebrated as Chinese Valentine's day.
