This program incorporates ancient folklore and customs in Qixi, such as girls washing their hair, putting on makeup, dyeing their nails, threading needles and praying to the star of the Weaver Girl. After pampering themselves by a flowing stream, they have a night full of longing for their own romantic encounter in the courtyard. Seated under the melon hut and the grape vine, they "listen" to the once-a-year meeting between the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl in the stars.

The song To Girls highlights folk customs while sending encouraging messages for women to be strong, confident and self-loving at the same time.

This dance show is part of the Magical Trip on Qixi series, which aired on Henan TV last Friday.
