2017-10-26

The 55th Chengdu Chrysanthemum Exhibition is on in People's Park.
Chrysanthemum is regarded as one of the Four Gentlemen in flowering plants (the others are plum blossom, orchid and bamboo) in the Chinese culture
because it braves the cold weather and blooms in the cold weather of late autumn and early winter.
The 55th Chengdu Chrysanthemum Exhibition is now staged at the People's Park in downtown Chengdu.
Time: Oct. 21-Nov. 19
Venue: People's Park
Double Ninth Festival
The Double Ninth Festival, or Chongyang Festival, which is celebrated on the ninth day of the ninth month in the Chinese lunar calendar,
is designated as the Seniors' Day in China. This year's festival falls on Oct. 28 (Sat.).
Activities on chrysanthemums, such as flower appreciation, poems reciting and chrysanthemum wine drinking are held around the time.
Other traditional customs during the Festival include Mountain Climbing and Cornels Wearing.
The Double Ninth Festival is an occasion for family members to climb mountains and enjoy beautiful sights together.
During the period around the festival, people often wear cornel sprays (cornus officinalis, a medicinal herb with strong fragrance)
in the hope of expelling evil spirits and keeping healthy.
