Have you heard of the Dragon Boat Festival? 
 

Festival origin

The Dragon Boat Festival, the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, has had a history of more than 2,000 years. It is usually in June in the Gregorian calendar. The Dragon Boat Festival is to commemorate the death of Qu Yuan, a poet of the Chu State. He was a good and respected man, but because of the misdeeds of jealous rivals he eventually fell into disfavor in the emperor's court and later exiled . Finally, Qu Yuan jumped into Luojiang and died. After his death, People are very sad and crowded to the bank of the river to pay their respects to him.  This festival has been passed down since then.

On the Dragon Boat Festival, people will do many activities.

Dragon boat race

Dragon boat racing is the main custom of the Dragon Boat Festival. It is said that in ancient times, the people of Chu did not want Qu Yuan to die and row to save him. After that, every year on May 5th, a dragon boating event will be held to commemorate Qu Yuan.


Eating Zongzi

Zongzi is an essential food used to commemorate Qu Yuan in the Dragon Boat Festival. It is said that people ate them in the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). In early times, it was only glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in reed or other plant leaves and tied with colored thread, but now the fillings are more diversified, including jujube and bean paste, fresh meat, and ham and egg yolk.The custom of eating zongzi is now popular in North and South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asian nations.

Adults drink Xiong Huang Wine, which can fend off evil spirits.


 
Hanging mugwort and calamus

Hanging branches of moxa leaves around the doors of people’s homes will protect their families from evils as well as mosquito.
 

 
Wearing perfume pouch or scented sachets

On Dragon Boat Festival, parents also need to dress their children up with a perfume pouch. They first sew little bags with colorful silk cloth, then fill the bags with perfumes or herbal medicines, and finally string them with silk threads. The perfume pouch will be hung around the neck or tied to the front of a garment as an ornament. They are said to be able to ward off evil.
