The Double Ninth Festival is the traditional festival of the Chinese nation on the 9th day of the lunar calendar. The ancients believed that Jiujiu Chongyang was an auspicious day. In ancient times, the folks had the custom of ascending and praying, offering chrysanthemums, admiring ancestors, offering sacrifices to the ancestors, and banquets for life. Since its inception, it has added the connotation of respecting the elderly and so on. Ascending the autumn and gratefulness and respect for the elderly are two important themes of today's Chongyang festival activities.
