Celebrating Chinese Valentine's Day

Women dressed up as fairy maidens perform for tourists as part of Qixi celebrations at the Longmen Grottoes scenic spot in Luoyang, Henan province, on Aug 10, 2013. Qixi is also known as Chinese Valentine's Day. According to Chinese legend, a cowherd and a weaving maid were separated by the galaxy and allowed to meet only once a year in heaven on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, which falls on Aug 13 this year.
