Where could two nines get you?

Quite a few outcomes if we think mathematically...

But also "double nines" if we think literally...


Or perhaps the 

Double Ninth Festival!


Today happens to be the ninth day of the ninth lunar month.


We're sure you've heard of yin and yang.

Well, if the number is symbolic of yang... then two nines would quite literally result in "double yang"... which is why this festival is also called the 重 (double) 阳 (yang) 节 (festival) in Chinese!


Got it?

Alright.


As custom has it, it's now time for us to go hiking with our families and ascend to great heights.

And don't forget your chrysanthemum tea...
