What are people doing on the Dragon Boat Festival?

The Dragon Boat Festival is an important traditional festival of the Chinese nation. The Dragon Boat Festival was originally a festival to drive away plague gods and sacrifice dragons in summer. It was a festival for the ancients to sacrifice to dragons. There are also sayings to commemorate Wu Zixu, Cao E and Jie Zitui. Later on this day, the great patriotic poet Qu Yuan committed suicide by the river, so people also regard the Dragon Boat Festival as a day to commemorate Qu Yuan.

Dragon Boat Festival

According to legend, after Qu Yuan jumped into the Miluo River, the local people rowed boats to rescue him immediately after hearing the news. They went all the way to Dongting Lake, but they never saw Qu Yuan's body. At that time, just in time for the rainy day, the boats on the lake gathered together by the pavilion on the shore. When people learned that it was to salvage the virtuous minister, Dr. Qu, they set off again in the rain and rushed into the vast Dongting Lake. In order to express their grief, people rowed boats on the rivers, and then gradually developed into a dragon boat race. The people were afraid that the fish in the river would eat his body, so they brought rice balls and threw them into the river one after another to prevent the fish and shrimp from spoiling Qu Yuan's body. Later, it became the custom of eating zongzi.

Just last week, Zhuhai City held the Longzhou Competition to celebrate the arrival of the Dragon Boat Festival. Our company also participated in this event and achieved excellent results. It is believed that through this competition, the cohesion of the company can be greatly improved and better trolleys can be brought to customers.
