The Star Festival originates from Chinese legend of the two bright stars, Altair and Vega.

Vega, a weaving girl, and Altair, a cowherd boy, loved each other.

They had so much fun being together they stop working hard.

The king got angry and separated them by the big river or the Milky Way.

He allowed them to meet once a year across the Milky Way only on the night of July 7th.

On that day, people decorate bamboo branches with paper strips and ornaments to celebrate their reunion.

It is believed that a wish comes true when you write your wish on the paper strips and hang them on the bamboo.
