Over 1,000 years ago, Chinese poet Wang Wei of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) wrote "I know my brothers would, with dogwood spray in hand, climb up mountain and miss me so far away" - to express his nostalgia during Chongyang Festival.

Today, it is still celebrated by people from China, the Republic of Korea and Japan.

The Chongyang Festival, or the Double Ninth Festival, which takes place on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month on the Chinese calendar, falls on Oct 17 this year.
