Also dubbed as Valentines’s Day of the Miao, the festival is observed by the Miao people each year from the 14th to the 16th day of the third lunar month. During the festival, young women would invite their lovers to have “Sister Meal” together, go outing, tread on drums, sing in antiphonal sytle, exchange gifts, and even decide their betrohals. A genuine reflection of people’s romance life in the transition period from materiarchal to patrilineal society, this festival is dubbed as a “Festival Hidden in Flowers” and “The Oldest Valentine’s Day of the Orient”.
