Activities of the 12 Months: The 9th Month Anonymous Court Painters Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) Double Ninth Day refers to the 9th day of the 9th lunar month. The number 9 is particularly "yang" (as in yin-yang); the "yang" 3 is multiplied 3 times (3x3, hence the name Double Yang Day). One of the events associated with this day is ascending the heights, wearing dogwood, appreciating chrysanthemums, and drinking wine, which began in the Han dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) as a superstition to avoid bad luck. The superstition faded and by the Tang and Sung it became a time for scholars to gather, drink, view chrysanthemums, ascend heights, and compose poetry. The foreground here is filled with chrysanthemums as scholars gather and bring them for viewing. Up in the hills, scholars meet with wine and food to view the scenery.
