Cultivate the domestic goddess in you with some melon carving for Chinese Valentine’s Day
Qi Qiao Jie (or the seventh eve) is often called Chinese Valentine’s Day and is a day devoted to love. Lovers release Hung Ming sky lanterns at night and make wishes together. Young girls traditionally demonstrate their domestic skills, such as melon carving, and make wishes for a good husband!
