The ninth day of the ninth lunar month marks the traditional Chongyang Festival, or Double Ninth Festival, which falls on Saturday this year.

As respecting older people is a traditional virtue of Chinese and showing them respect on the Double Ninth Festival is a tradition, the Chinese government declared the Double Ninth Festival as Seniors' Day in 1989.

This year, various activities are organized to welcome the approaching Double Ninth Festival around China.
