Bamboo dancing is another essential activity for the Zhuang people on March 3 on the lunar calendar. Young teenagers and adults dress up in festive costumes while beating drums and expressing their admiration for each other.

Five colored sticky-rice and painted eggs are important snacks. The Zhuang people believe rice is good for a person’s health and painted eggs are the best keepsake of love.

And in the Southern China island province of Hainan, the Li and Miao people celebrate the special day as the "Festival of Love". And it is also the day for remembering ancestors.

She, Dong, Yao and Tujia ethnic groups also have the tradition of celebrating on the third day of the third lunar month.
