Qixi Festival is a traditional festival in our country. After historical development, Qixi Festival has been endowed with some beautiful love legends and has become a festival symbolizing love. Legend has it that on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month, the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl meet on the Magpie Bridge in the sky. Today, Qixi Festival has become China's Valentine's Day, and couples will give each other small gifts to express their love on this day, or small sand timer objects that their lovers like.

The Qixi Festival has also been included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list. Although today, many customs of the Qixi Festival have gradually disappeared, replaced by gifts such as lipsticks, bags, hour clock sand and various items that girls like. There are many interesting activities on the Qixi Festival in ancient times. In ancient times, girls would wear needles on July 7th to show their knitting skills, in order to pray to be good at sewing and show their ingenuity.
