重阳节是在中国历法的第九个月的第九天,是一个传统的中国节日。根据《易经》,九是阳数,农历九月的第九天(或双九)有太多的阳(中国传统的精神概念),因此是一个潜在的危险日期。因此,这一天被称为“重阳节”。为了防止危险,这一天习惯上登高避祸。

Chongyang Festival is on the ninth day of the ninth month in the Chinese calendar, is a traditional Chinese festival. According to the Yijing, nine is a yang number; the ninth day of the ninth lunar month (or double nine) has too much yang (a traditional Chinese spiritual concept) and is thus a potentially dangerous date. Hence, the day is called "Double Yang Festival" (重阳节). To protect against danger, it is customary to climb a high mountain.
