The legend has it that when the heavenly weaving maid descended to the world and bathed in a pool, a cowherd hid her dress but was trapped, so they met and fell in love with each other. After they were married, they had two children – a boy and a girl. But the Queen of Heaven was upset. She retrieved the maid and even drew a line in the sky with a hairpin, which became a raging river (Milky Way) blocking the cowherd (Altair) from chasing the weaving maid (Vega). Afterwards, they were only allowed to be reunited on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month each year; hence the traditional Chinese festival Double Seventh Day. The festival was inscribed on China's National Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2006.
