The tale of the Cowherd and the Weavergirl originated in the Han Dynasty, two romantic lovers who were separated by the gods and only allowed to be together for one night out of every year, the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, when a bridge of Magpies would fly across the river of the Milky Way and allow them to briefly meet.
