More from CNET on Chinese Valentine's Day:
The festival falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month yearly, which is supposed to be the day when magpies will form a bridge for the lovers to meet. In the mythological tale, they were separated by a goddess because the weaver girl, who is a celestial being, was not supposed to fall in love and marry the mortal cowherd.
