Romeo and Juliet’s story is a well-known tragic romance in the West, however, in the East we have a similar story with a magical twist. The story of ‘The Cowherd (牛郎) and the Weaver Girl (織女)’ have been told and re-told through poems and proses over the ages. Their love was forbidden, and they were banished to heaven and Earth. The magpies took pity on the star-crossed lovers and decided to form a bridge reaching the heavens, allowing them to meet among the stars for one night each year.
