Dragon Boat Day Holiday

25th June is the Dragon Boat Day in 2020, it’s a traditional festival and public holiday in China. With the festival is approaching, PX Global distributes the presents to all staff and we’ll take 3 days’ holiday. Normally we will spend the holidays with our families together. Actually for Chinese, almost all the public festivals, we will spend the time with our families, such as having a big meal or have some entertainment or have a short trip together. For dragon boat day, as one of the main roles in the festival, sticky rice dumplings–Zongzi will never be forgotten by anyone.

The festival is for commemorating Qu Yuan, who was a patriotic poet and a loyal official of the state of Chu during the Warring States Period. He wrote a great deal of enduring poems showing his love and passion for his country, some of which are still very famous in China. In 278 BC, the Qin State conquered the capital of Chu. On hearing of the defeat, Qu Yuan in great despair committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo River on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month.

Qu Yuan

When the local people heard of Qu Yuan’s death, they were very sad, and rowed out on the river to search for his body, but were unable to find him. To preserve his body, the locals paddled their boats up and down the river, hitting the water with their paddles and beating drums to scare evil spirits away. They threw lumps of rice into the river to feed the fish so that they would not eat Qu Yuan’s body. An old Chinese doctor poured realgar wine into the river to poison the monsters and to protect Qu Yuan. Since then, people in the Miluo River area have followed similar practices to commemorate Qu Yuan on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. Gradually, rowing boats developed into dragon boat racing, the lumps of rice became sticky rice dumplings (zongzi) traditionally eaten during the festival, and realgar wine is now drunk in commemoration of the great patriot Qu Yuan.

Wish everybody will enjoy the holiday well.
