These two stars were said to be lovers, a mortal and a goddess, who were in love but cruelly separated – only allowed to be reunited once a year.
Throughout the festival you will see traditions such as needlework competitions, burning of incense and people (namely young women) making offerings to the lovesick pair. More recently, people have taken to visiting Lover’s Rock in Wan Chai to make their offerings.
