The ninth day of the ninth month in the Chinese lunar calendar is a traditional Chinese festival — the Double Ninth Festival, or Chongyang Festival. In Chinese culture, nine has long been regarded as the number of yang, making the day of the festival one of two yang numbers, while "chong" in Chinese means double - thus creating the name of the festival, Chongyang.
People will go and enjoy the autumn and chrysanthemum, go climbing, eat Double Ninth Cake, drink Chrysanthemum wine, and wearing dogwood to celebrate the festival.
