Traditions of Chung Yeung

The festival of Chung Yeung commemorates a legend from the Han Dynasty (BC 202- AD 220) that states that a soothsayer advised the Woon King to take his family to high place for the entirety of ninth day of the ninth moon.

When the King and his family returned home, they found all the townspeople who hadn't gone to a high place had died.

It is now considered good luck to travel to a high place on the ninth day of the ninth moon, the Chung Yeung Festival.

A traditional custom on this day is to fly kites, as it is said that kites can carry bad luck up into the sky.
