Here I`d like to briefly introduced this traditional festival as follows:
"Dragon Boat Festival" as one of Chinese national legal holidays, has been approved as the world's intangible cultural
heritage.The Festival originates in China for people to do something about illnesses and epidemic prevention at the very first.
Later in some district, people held a dragon boat boatrace for tribal totem worship. Also,afterwards a famous patriotic poet
Yuan Qu died on this day. Since then Han Chinese began to commemorate him on this day. Also there are sayings for
commemorating Zixu Wu, E Chang etc.
For the Dragon Boat Festival there are following customs: eating zongzi, drink realgar wine, hanging calamus, wormwood,
folium artemisiae argyi, rhizoma atractylodis, radix angelicae, custom of dragon boat racing.
Our company bought some Zongzi for us. Zongzi are made of rice, just like a rice pudding.
