The Double Ninth Festival is a traditional Chinese festival, which falls on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month. In the book of changes, the number of "Nine" refers to the number of Yang. The two numbers of "Nine Nine" are mutually important, so it is called "Double Ninth". Because the sun and the moon meet nine, it is also called "Double Ninth". Returning to the truth in 1999 is the beginning of one yuan. The ancients believed that the Double Ninth Festival was an auspicious day. In ancient times, there were many folk customs in Chongyang Festival, such as climbing high to pray for blessings, enjoying chrysanthemums in autumn, wearing and inserting Cornus officinalis, worshiping gods and ancestors, drinking banquets and praying for longevity. Since then, the connotation of respecting the elderly has been added. On the day of the Double Ninth Festival, we will enjoy a banquet and a high meeting to thank and respect the elderly. Climbing to enjoy the autumn and thanking the elderly are two important themes of Chongyang Festival.
The Double Ninth Festival originated from the worship of celestial phenomena, started in ancient times, popularized in the Western Han Dynasty, and flourished after the Tang Dynasty. According to the extant historical materials and textual research, in ancient times, there were activities of worshiping heaven and ancestors for bumper harvest in Ji Qiu. According to Lu's spring and Autumn Annals, the ancients worshipped the emperor of heaven and ancestors in order to thank the emperor of heaven and ancestors for their kindness when the crops were bumper harvest in September. This is the original form of the Double Ninth Festival as the autumn harvest sacrificial activities. The Tang Dynasty is an important period in which traditional festivals and customs are combined and shaped, and its main part has been handed down till now. Chongyang ancestor worship is an ancient folk custom with profound significance. Chongyang Festival, together with new year's Eve, Qingming Festival and July half, is known as the four traditional festivals of ancestor worship in China.
In the historical development and evolution, the Double Ninth Festival is a mixture of various folk customs and carries rich cultural connotations. In the folk custom concept, "Nine" is the largest number in the number, which has the meaning of long-term longevity and reposes people's blessing for the health and longevity of the elderly. On May 20, 2006, the Double Ninth Festival was listed in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list by the State Council.
The law of the people's Republic of China on the protection of the rights and interests of the elderly, which was revised and passed by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress in 2012, stipulates that the ninth day of the ninth lunar month is the old people's day.
