Daily activities and ceremonies to show filial piety have been an essential part of traditional Chinese virtues, and one important occasion to practice this tradition in autumn is the Chongyang Festival, or Double Ninth Festival, which is observed on the ninth day of the ninth month on the Chinese lunar calendar.

Families will take senior members to climb up the mountains to enjoy the cool, refreshing air of the fall, appreciate a variety of chrysanthemums in full bloom and wish for longevity, among other activities to cheer up the elderly group and make them well-prepared for the coming winter.
