Double Ninth Festival Customs:Flying a paper crane

(CNTV)

09:52, October 20, 2011

Paper crane is just kite. According to our traditions and customs, flying kites usually happen at the Qing Ming Festival. But Tomb Sweeping Festival is during the rainy season which obviously is not suit for flying a kite, while Double Ninth Day owns clear autumn sky and crisp air making kite flying a best outdoor activity.


In the recent years something new was added into the old festival and it became an annual "Respect-the-Senior Festival". Every time it comes to this day, people will hold all kinds of activities to show their wish for the senior people that they can always keep healthy and happy.
