Explanation: Qi Qiao Jie (乞巧节, The Festival to Plead for Skills), sometimes called Chinese Valentine's Day, falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the Chinese calendar and thus is also known as Double Seven Day. It is traditional for young girls to demonstrate their domestic arts on this day (especially melon carving) and to make wishes for a good husband. Additional names include:
The Night of Sevens (七夕)
Seventh Sister's Birthday (七姐誕 qi1 jie3 dan4)
The Night of Skills (巧夕 qiao3 xi4)
