The annual Dragon Boat Festival is here again.

How can we miss eating zongzi and watching dragon boat races?

Have you gone to the riverside of your hometown to watch the dragon boat races this year?

People in various regions are very happy these days, and the riversides everywhere are very lively.

The custom of the Dragon Boat Festival: Eating Zongzi. 

Zongzi is mainly made of glutinous rice

and stuffing, wrapped in bamboo leaves. There is a saying that people could not bear to see the

fish and shrimp in the river eat Qu Yuan's body, so they took rice balls and threw them into the river.


Do you know why is it called as the Dragon Boat Festival?

Duan means the beginning. Noon is the hot summer, and 11 am to 1 pm is noon, which is the

 hottest time of the day. The Dragon Boat Festival is the beginning of the hottest time of the year,

that is, the beginning of mid summer.


The legend of the Dragon Boat Festival was originally a festival to worship the Dragon Ancestor in

the form of dragon boat racing. During the Warring States Period, the Chu poet Qu Yuan could

not bear the invasion of his motherland and chose to jump into the river to commit suicide. Since

then, the Dragon Boat Festival has become a festival to commemorate Qu Yuan.
