    Dragon Boat Festival is a 2,000-year-old tradition celebrated nationwide in various forms to remember the ancient poet Qu Yuan, who committed suicide out of love for his country during the Warring States period (475-221 BC).


    As a cadet member of the Chu royal house, Qu served in high offices. However, when the king decided to ally with the increasingly powerful state of Qin, Qu was banished for opposing the alliance and even accused of treason. During his exile, Qu Yuan wrote a great deal of poetry.

    Twenty-eight years later, Qin captured Ying, the Chu's capital. In despair, Qu Yuan committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo River. The local people, who admired him, raced out in their boats to save him, or at least retrieve his body. This is said to have been the origin of dragon boat races. When his body could not be found, they dropped balls of sticky rice into the river so that the fish would eat them instead of Qu Yuan’s body. This is said to be the origin of zongzi.

    Dragon boat racing is the most important activity during the Dragon Boat Festival. The wooden boats are shaped and decorated in the form of a Chinese dragon. The boat size varies by region. Generally it is about 20–35 meters in length and needs 30–60 people to paddle it. During the races, dragon boat teams paddle harmoniously and hurriedly, accompanied by the sound of beating drums. It is said that the winning team will have good luck and a happy life in the following year.

    Zongzi is the most traditional Dragon Boat Festival food. It’s a kind of sticky rice dumpling made of glutinous rice wrapped in triangle or rectangle shapes in bamboo or reed leaves, and tied with soaked stalks or colorful silky cords. The fillings can be egg, beans, dates, fruits, sweet potato, walnuts, mushrooms, meat, or a combination of them. They are generally steamed. The flavors of zongzi are usually different from one region to another across China.

    Overall, Dragon Boat Festival is a very significant and an interesting holiday! Blessings dear friend Happy Dragon Boat Festival!
