Happy Dragon Boat Festival!



The Dragon Boat Festival, celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, is one of the traditional festivals in China. The main customs include dragon boat racing, eating zongzi (rice dumplings). It originated from the commemoration of the ancient poet Qu Yuan. On this day, people hold various activities to pray for health, peace, and reunion. The Dragon Boat Festival is not only a cultural treasure of the Chinese nation, but has also been included in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.



Zongzi, a traditional food for Dragon Boat Festival, is made of glutinous rice and fillings wrapped in bamboo leaves. The fillings vary by region, such as bean paste or pork. The custom of eating zongzi originated from the legend of Qu Yuan.


Dragon Boat Racing is one of the most distinctive folk activities during the Dragon Boat Festival. People organize dragon boat teams to compete in races on rivers and lakes. The dragon boats are shaped like long dragons, with various patterns painted on them. Participants row vigorously, striving to be the first. Dragon Boat Racing embodies the spirit of unity, cooperation, and perseverance of the Chinese people.
