You：Chinese lover’s day just passed.
David：Ah, the time for lovers to meet.
You：Yes, it is in the August. I can’t remember which day, but I do know that in the Chinese lunar calendar it’s July seven. I don’t know which way it is in the solar calendar.
David：Someone told me once about the story behind this special day.
You：This’s a story of two lovers. They are two stars in the sky.
David：Yes, it is a beautiful story. One was a goddess, the daughter of a god, and one was a shepherd boy. They fell in love next to a stream at first sight. Then they married, and had children, but then the mother or father of the goddess got mad.
You：Her mother, yeah. That’s a very beautiful story.
David：They were divided to starts on two sides, and only on that day can they see each other.
You：They were sepereted by a river, I mean, the Milky Way.
David：The River? No bridge?
You：No, in Chinese it’s called Yinhe, the SilverRiver.
David：You mean the Milky Way. The Milky Way is the English name of our galaxy. At night, the galaxy appears like a river in the sky.
You：Oh, I see. Anyway, they can meet only once a year on a bridge made by birds. A lot of birds come together to form a bridge that the lovers use to meet each other on.
