The Chong Yang Festival (重阳节) is not as widely celebrated as the likes of Hungry Ghost Festival (中元節) and Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节) in Singapore. This festival was brought about largely due to the Yi Jing (易经) – an ancient Chinese text, which mentioned that the number ‘9’ is one of immense yang energy.
