Happy Tanabata Festival


According to the chinese legend There were 2 immortals that lived in the heaven, at the same time ten sons of the Jade Emperor transformed into tens suns that caused the earth to scotch. The Jade emperor failed to order his sons to stop ruining the earth, thus he summoned Houyi to help.


With Houyi\'s Legendary archer skills, he shot down 9 of the 10 son, and spared one to be the sun.
The jade emperor was not pleased with his Houyi\'s solution. As punishment he banished Houyi and chang\'er onto earth to live as mortals.

Houyi saw how miserable Chang\'er was over the loss of immortality, he decided to journey on a perilous quest to find the pill of immortality so that they could be immortal again. As he finished his quest, the Queen mother of the West gave him a pill but warned him that they should only eat half of the pill each to become immortal again.

Houyi brought the pill home and stored it in a case, also warning Chang\'er not to open the case. Chang\'er was too curious, as Houyi was out of their home, She opened the case and found the pill. She then swallowed the whole pill by accident when Houyi returned home and caught her by suprise. She started to float into the sky because of the pill overdosing. Although Houyi wanted to shoot her down to prevent her from floating further, he couldn\'t bear to hurt his wife. Chang\'er then kept on floating till she landed on the moon.
       

This was the story of this 2 lover.

        Los amantes de Teruel                        En Teruel, un joven llamado Juan Diego Martínez de Marcilla se enamoró de Isabel, hija de Pedro Segura. El padre no tenía otra hija y era muy rico. Los jóvenes se amaban mucho, hasta el punto que hablaron de su amor. El joven le dijo que deseaba tomarla por esposa, ella respondió que el deseo de ella era el mismo, pero que supiese que nunca lo haría sin que su padre y madre se lo mandasen. Entonces, él la quiso más. Él era un buen joven, pero no tenía riquezas. El joven dijo a la doncella que, como su padre tan solo lo despreciaba por la falta de dinero, si ella quería esperarlo cinco años él iría a trabajar por mar y por tierra donde fuera necesario para poder ganar dinero. Ella se lo prometió. Peleando contra los moros, ganó pasados cinco años cien mil sueldos, por mar y por tierra. La doncella en este tiempo fue muy importunada por el padre para que tomase marido. Su respuesta era que había votado virginidad hasta que tuviese veinte años, diciendo que las mujeres no debían casarse hasta que pudiesen y supiesen regir su casa. El padre, como la amaba, quiso complacerla.                                Pasados los cinco años el padre le dijo: «Hija, mi deseo es que tomes compañía». Ella, viendo que el plazo de los cinco años había pasado y no sabía nada del enamorado, dijo que lo haría. Enseguida el padre la desposó, y al poco tiempo se realizaron las bodas; y el otro regresó. El enamorado se puso tras el lecho de su amada ya desposada y le dijo: «Bésame, que me muero». Y ella repuso: «No quiera Dios que yo falte a mi marido. Por la pasión de Jesucristo os suplico que busquéis a otra, que de mí no hagáis cuenta, pues si a Dios no ha complacido, tampoco me complace a mí». Él dijo otra vez: «Bésame, que me muero». Repuso ella: «No quiero». Entonces él cayó muerto. Ella, que lo veía como si fuera de día por la gran luz de la habitación, se puso a temblar y despertó al marido diciendo que roncaba tanto que le hacía sentir miedo, que le contase alguna cosa. Y él contó una burla. Ella dijo que quería contar otra. Y le contó lo ocurrido y de cómo con un suspiro Juan había muerto. Dijo el marido: «¡Oh, malvada. ¿Y por qué no lo has besado?». Repuso ella: «Por no faltar a mi marido». «Ciertamente, dijo él, eres digna de alabanzas». Él, todo alterado, se levantó y no sabía qué hacer. Decía: «Si las gentes saben que aquí ha muerto, dirán que yo lo he matado y seré puesto en gran apuro». Acordaron esforzarse y lo llevaron a casa de su padre. Lo hicieron con gran afán y no fueron oídos por nadie. A la joven le vino al pensamiento de cuánto la quería Juan y de cuánto había hecho por ella, y que por no quererlo besar había muerto. Acordó ir a besarlo antes de que lo enterrasen; se fue a la iglesia del señor San Pedro, que allí lo tenían. Las mujeres honradas se levantaron por ella. Ella no se preocupó de otra cosa más que de ir hacia el muerto. Le descubrió la cara apartando la mortaja, y lo besó tan fuerte que allí murió. Las gentes que veían que ella, que no era parienta, estaba así yacente sobre el muerto, fueron para decirle que se quitase de allí, pero vieron que estaba muerta. El marido contó el caso a todos los que había delante, según ella se lo había contado. Acordaron enterrarlos juntos en una sepultura. Juntos para siempre.

        :

        Long, long ago, there was an honest and kind-hearted fellow named Niu Lang (Cowhand). His parents died when he was a child. Later he was driven out of his home by his sister-in-law. So he lived by himself herding cattle and farming. One day, a fairy from heaven Zhi Nu (Weaver Maid) fell in love with him and came down secretly to earth and married him. The cowhand farmed in the field and the Weaver Maid wove at home. They lived a happy life and gave birth to a boy and a girl.Unfortunately, the God of Heaven soon found out the fact and ordered the Queen Mother of the Western Heavens tsero bring the Weaver Maid back.With the help of celestial cattle, the Cowhand flew to heaven with his son and daughter. At the time when he was about to catch up with his wife, the Queen Mother took off one of her gold hairpins and made a stroke. One billowy river appeared in front of the Cowhand. The Cowhand and Weaver Maid were separated on the two banks forever and could only feel their tears. Their loyalty to love touched magpies, so tens of thousands of magpies came to build a bridge for the Cowhand and Weaver Maid to meet each other. The Queen Mother was eventually moved and allowed them to meet each year on the 7th of the 7th lunarmonth. Hence their meeting date has been called Qi Xi (Double Seventh).

Happy Tanabata Festival

       

        The story of Chang E is the most widely accepted tale regarding the moon and the origin of the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is said that in ancient times, ten suns existed and the extreme heat made people\'s lives very difficult. It was the hero Hou Yi, who, owing to his great strength, shot down nine of the ten suns. On hearing of this amazing feat and the hero who performed it, people came from far and wide to learn from him. Peng Meng was among these people. Later, Hou Yi married a beautiful and kind-hearted woman named Chang E and lived a happy life.

One day, Hou Yi came upon Wangmu (the queen of heaven) on the way to meet his old friend. Wangmu presented him an elixir which, if took, would cause him to ascend immediately to heaven and become a god/goddess. Instead of drinking the potion himself, Hou Yi took it home and presented it to Chang E to keep. Unfortunately, Peng Meng secretly saw Hou Yi give the potion to his wife and three days later, while Hou Yi was out hunting, Peng Meng rushed into the backyard and demanded that Chang E hand over the elixir. Knowing that she could not win, she took out the elixir and swallowed it immediately. The moment she drank it, she flew out of the window and up into the sky. Chang E\'s great love for her husband drew her towards the Moon, which is the nearest place to the earth on the heaven.

Happy Tanabata Festival


        IGN: Rodzki
        Server: S88 Sphinx
       
        The story of Tanabata Matsuri was about a princess, named Orihime (Weaving Princess). She was the daughter of Tentei (Sky King). Everyday she went to the bank of Amanogawa (Milky Way, or sometimes called the Heavenly River) to weave clothes. Her father loved the clothes very much so she worked hard to weave it. However, Orihime was sad because of her constant work, she could never have the chance to meet and fall in love with anyone. Tentei became concerned, so he let Orihime meet Hikoboshi (Cow Herder). Hikoboshi lived and worked on the other side of the Amanogawa.
When instantly fell in love when they first met, then got married. But ever since their marriage, Orihime would no longer weave clothes for Tentei. Also, Hikoboshi allowed his cows to stray all over heaven. Tentei got angry, and separated the couple across Amanogawa and forbade them to meet again. Orihime became really depressed because of this and she begged her father, Tentei, to let them meet again. Tentei was moved because of Orihime’s tears, so he allowed Orihime and Hikoboshi to meet every 7th day of the 7th month if she worked hard on her weaving. When they first tried to meet again, they found out that they could not cross the river because there was no bridge. Orihime cried a lot that a flock of magpies came, promising her to make a bridge with their wings so that she could cross the river. Orihime and Hikoboshi represented the stars Vega and Altair.
        ******************************************************************************************************
       

        The story of \'The Princess and the Herdboy\' is about the Princess who known as the \'weaving Princess\' because she sits at her loom all day and weaves the most delicate stuff for her father, the King of the sky. The delicate things she wove was hung among the stars in the sky and draped down towards the Earth, the cloth that we call clouds, fog and mist. The King was very proud of his daughter, because she was a big help to him as he was busy making the sky and needed all the help he could get. One day he noticed that the Princess was becoming pale from all her hard work, so he tells her that she must take a one day holiday. The Princess is very happy to have a holiday, and decides that she will go and wade in the stream called the Milky Way, that flows through the sky. When she got to the Milky Way, in the middle of the stream, she saw a handsome boy, washing a cow in the water. They introduce themselves to each other, dance together, and fall in love. They are so happy together that the Princess forgets all about going home to her father. The king of the sky became very worried when the Princess failed to return, and sends a messenger to find her and tell her to come home. But the Princess was having so much fun that she didn\'t listen to the messenger, and so the King had to come himself to take the Princess home. The King told his daughter that she had been a very bad girl, that she can never have another holiday and must stay with him and weave everyday. To prevent the Princess from returning to the Herdboy the King poured more and more star water into the milky way, until the shallow stream became a deep, deep river, so that the Herdboy and the Princess could no longer get across to each other. The Princess returns with the King and sits at her loom, but she is so lonely and longed so much for Herdboy that she couldn\'t weave at all. Instead she just sat there weeping all the time, and over time the sky became emptier and emptier of clouds, fog and mist. On seeing this, the king tells his daughter that if she weaves again and works very hard he will let her go and play with the Herdboy once a year. The Princess was so happy that she did what her father asked and has been working hard ever since, and once a year, on the seventh night of the seventh month, the King of the sky keeps his promise to the weaving Princess, and builds a bridge that she can cross to meet with the Herdboy once a year.
