Hi guys! Today we'll be checking out some star-crossed lovers! 💔

No, **not** Romeo and Juliet! I mean first of all, the story of 牛郎织女 -- niú láng zhī nv -- dates back to at least the Jin Dynasty -- 250-420 AD 😱. Take that, Shakespeare! Also, Romeo and Juliet may be tragically "star-crossed," but, as the story goes, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu literally *are* stars -- on opposite ends of the Milky Way 😦.

Let's rewind. Zhi Nu is the youngest daughter of the Queen Mother of the West and the Jade Emperor (Hey -- we know who those people are! 😁).

Meanwhile, Niu Lang was a poor. sad, unloved cowherd. As many versions of the story go, though, the cow was magical -- which is never a bad thing 😂. The cow led Niu Lang to steal the clothes of a girl bathing with her sisters in a river.

As questionable as a method as that may seem, it worked! Zhi Nu and Niu Lang were married and had children ❤️.

But there's always a but. And this story's "but" is that the Queen Mother was not happy with this union. Niu Lang had a magical coat (that's another story), and when the Queen Mother tried to separate them, he flew up to try to join Zhi Nu in the heavens.

Unfortunately, the Queen Mother wasn't having it, and she separated the two with a river in the sky, only allowing them to meet on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar -- "Chinese Valentine's Day."
