Origin

Legend has it that in the remote antiquity,  the Li people live by the Changhua River on Hainan Island. One year there came a serious flood, causing all the Li people death, leaving only a young girl and her elder brother. The boy was called Tianfei, and the girl, Guanyin. On the third day of the third lunar month, the girl made herself up and was married to her elder brother. As time went by, more and more Li people were born and grew up. To commemorate the brother and sister, the Li people hold the sacrificial activity on the third day of the third lunar month every year. Now it is a traditional festival for the Li yuong people to pursue for love and happiness.
