 Ascending hills to enjoy autumn scenery


The ninth of the ninth month of Chinese lunar calendar (October 25, 2020) is a significant traditional Chinese festival – Double Ninth Festival. The number nine is the highest single-digit odd number (yang number). People ascend mountains and hills to admire chrysanthemums and beautiful autumn scenery, wearing dogwood to ward off evil spirits. Traditionally, it marks an important occasion to worship gods and ancestors. Today, the festival is enriched with new cultural aspects – to respect, love and assist the elderly.
