The Double Ninth Festival (also known as the Chung Yeung Festival) is celebrated in Taiwan as an observed holiday on the ninth day of the ninth month in the Chinese calendar.
This festival also goes by other names such as the Festival of High Places and Autumn Remembrance.
On this holiday, many traditional locals may visit the graves of their ancestors to pay their respects.
It’s also considered good luck to travel to a high place on this festival. You may even see locals flying kites, as it’s said to be a traditional custom that kites can carry bad luck up into the sky.
