Chung Yeong Festival (重陽節), also known as the Double Ninth Festival (久久節 ) and the Chrysanthemum Festival (菊の節句), takes place on the ninth day of the ninth month of the Chinese Lunar calendar. On this day, traditional Chinese and Korean visit their ancestors’ cemetery to pay respect, offering food and fruit, and burning incense for their ancestors.
According to the Lo Shu number, nine is the Yang Fire element and the double ninth day and month brings intense fire. On that day, it’s best to drink chrysanthemum tea or liquor to balance your health as chrysanthemum blooms abundantly during that time.
