Double Ninth Festival (Jieyang)

Double Ninth Festival (Jieyang)

City: Jieyang

About: According to the I Ching, nine is a yang number; the ninth day of the ninth lunar month (or double nine) has too much yang (a traditional Chinese spiritual concept) and is thus a potentially dangerous date. Hence, the day is also called "Double Yang Festival". To protect against danger, it is customary to climb a high mountain. Around Didu Town in Jieyang City, people have a custom of eating fish congee. In other places, people have a custom of eating mixed stew congee. On this occasion, children fly kites and there is a ballad going like “On the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, kids fly kites everywhere”.
