Origin of the Double Ninth Festival
In an ancient and mysterious book Yi Jing, number "9" was thought to be Yang, meaning masculine or positive. So the number nine in both month and day create the Double Ninth Festival, or Chongyang Festival. Chong in Chinese means "double." Also, as double ninth was pronounced the same as the word to signify "forever", both are "Jiu Jiu," the Chinese ancestors considered it an auspicious day worth celebration. The earliest record of the name of "Double Ninth Festival" was in the period of Three Kingdoms(220-280).

The origin of Double Ninth Festival can date back to at least the beginning of Han Dynasty. At that time, Queen Lv was so jealous of Concubine Qi, who is one of the favorite of Liu Bang(the first emperor of the Han Dynasty,256 or 247-195 BC), that she ill-treated the latter and drove her maid out of the imperial palace marry a Common people. This maid, who is known as Miss Jia, told people that in the imperial palace, every ninth day of the ninth lunar month, they wear dogwoods and drink chrysanthemum wine, otherwise there would be disasters. Later many common people followed the custom and it gradually prevailed all over the country.
The ninth day of the ninth month is a double yang day, hence the name "Chong Yang Festival". (Chong means "repeat" in Chinese.) It has become a special day for people to pay their respects to the elderly and a day for the elderly to enjoy themselves. It has also been declared China's Day for the Elderly. It is an ancient festival and a representative of Chinese culture.
