  The Flower Festival

  Commonly known as the festival of the Flower God, the "Birthday of a Hundred Flowers," or simply the Flower God's Birthday, this traditional festival is celebrated by the Chinese nation. During the festival, people venture outdoors to admire the blossoms, an activity known as "going on a spring outing." Girls decorate flower branches with colorful paper cuttings in a tradition called "admiring the red," commemorating the birthday of a hundred flowers. This day, infused with romantic allure, also becomes a gathering for young women, who come together to play, meet, and make friends. Unmarried girls particularly enjoy admiring the red, paying homage to the Flower God, indulging in flower cakes, engaging in flower commands, and praying for vitality and beauty akin to that of flowers.
