Okay.  Today is the seventh day of the seventh month of the Chinese calendar ..... known as the Double Seven Festival.  Also known as Chinese Valentines Day.

Should be called the Double-Present day .... 2 new years, 2 valentines day, 2 birthdays, gets expensive here!

I knew there was something odd today...normally there are lots of magpies here, but today there are none...they must have flown up to form the bridge across the Milky Way so the boy in the magic cow hide and the daughter of Huang Di can have their annual kiss...

Don't forget Womans Day, the 3 birthdays a girl might have in a year with an extra lunar month, anniversaries of just about anything and any day of the week ending in a 'Y'
