The Dragon Boat Festival, the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, has had a history of more than 2,000 years. It is usually in June in the Gregorian calendar.

There are many legends about the evolution of the festival, the most popular of which is in commemoration of Qu Yuan (340-278 BC). Qu Yuan was minister of the State of Chu and one of China“s earliest poets. In face of great pressure from the powerful Qin State, he advocated enriching the country and strengthening its military forces so as to fight against the Qin. However, he was opposed by aristocrats headed by Zi Lan, and later deposed and exiled by King Huai. In his exiled days, he still cared much for his country and people and composed immortal poems including Li Sao (The Lament), Tian Wen (Heavenly Questions) and Jiu Ge (Nine Songs), which ha

d far-reaching influences. In 278 BC, he heard the news that Qin troops had finally conquered Chu“s capital, so he finished his last piece Huai Sha (Embracing Sand) and plunged himself into the Miluo River, clasping his arms to a large stone. The day happened to be the 5th of the 5th month in the Chinese lunar calendar. After his death, the people of Chu crowded to the bank of the river to pay their respects to him. The fishermen sailed their boats up and down the river to look for his body. People threw into the water zongzi (pyramid-shaped glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in reed or bamboo leaves) and eggs to divert possible fish or shrimp from attacking his body. An old doctor poured a jug of reaglar wine (Chinese liquor seasoned with realgar) into the water, hoping to turn all aquatic beasts drunk. That“s why people later followed the customs such as dragon boat racing, eating zongzi and drinking realgar wine on that day.

Dragon boat racing is an indispensable part of the festival, held all over the country. As the gun is fired, people will see racers in dragon-shaped canoes pulling the oars harmoniously and hurriedly, accompanied by rapid drums, speeding toward their destination. Folk tales say the game originates from the activities of seeking Qu Yuan“s body, but experts, after painstaking and meticulous research, conclude that dragon boat racing is a semi-religious, semi-entertaining program from the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). In the following thousands of years, the game spread to Japan, Vietnam and Britain as well as China“s Chinese Taiwan and Hong Kong. Now dragon boat racing has developed into an aquatic sports item which features both Chinese tradition and modern sporting spirit. In 1980, it was listed into the state sports competition programs and has since been held every year. The award is called xxxQu Yuan Cup.xxx

Zongzi is an essential food of the Dragon Boat Festival. It is said that people ate them in the Spring and Autumn Period (770--476 BC). In early times, it was only glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in reed or other plant leaves and tied with colored thread, but now the fillings are more diversified, including jujube and bean paste, fresh meat, and ham and egg yolk. If time permits, people will soak glutinous rice, wash reed leaves and wrap up zongzi themselves. Otherwise, they will go to shops to buy whatever stuff they want. The custom of eating zongzi is now popular in North and South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asian nations.

On Dragon Boat Festival, parents also need to dress their children up with a perfume pouch. They first sew little bags with colorful silk cloth, then fill the bags with perfumes or herbal medicines, and finally string them with silk threads. The perfume pouch will be hung around the neck or tied to the front of a garment as an ornament. They are said to be able to ward off evil.

The Dragon Boat Festival originated from the worship of celestial phenomena and evolved from the dragon totem sacrifice in the ancient times. The Dragon Boat Festival ceremony and custom are related to the primitive belief, the sacrificial culture, the Ganzhi calendar, and the celestial phenomenon that the seven dragons are located in nanzhong. The ancient Chinese astrological culture has a long history and is broad and profound. The ancients began to explore the mystery of the universe very early, and thus deduced a complete and profound set of star watching culture. According to the preface to the spring and autumn calendar: xxxwhen heaven and earth were opened up, everything was muddy and ignorant; Yin and Yang were relied on, and the celestial body began in the north pole... The sun and moon revolved in five latitudes; the emperor came out... To determine the image of the sky, the instrument of the earth, and the trunk and branch to determine the degree of the sun and the moon.xxx In ancient times, people determined the image of the sky and the instrument of the earth. According to the track and position of the sun, moon and stars, the area near the ecliptic and the equator was divided into 28 groups of stars, commonly known as xxx28 constellationsxxx, which were divided into seven constellations in the southeast, northwest and four directions, namely xxxfour constellationsxxx; In the East, xxxJiao, Kang, Di, Fang, Xin, Wei and Jixxx form a complete dragon shaped star, that is, Canglong seven constellations. The appearance and appearance cycle of the seven dragons is consistent with the four hour cycle of a year. They rise in the East in spring, rise in the south in summer, fall in the West in autumn, and disappear under the northern horizon in winter. On the midsummer Dragon Boat Festival, the seven dragons are hanging high in the middle of the sky in the south. They are in the xxxmiddlexxx position, which means that things are at their peak. It is a auspicious celestial phenomenon.

In traditional culture, the location is linked with the time of the branches and the eight trigrams. According to the eight trigrams, heaven and earth determine the north and south, and heaven and earth are in the order of North and south. The upper heaven is Qian, and the lower earth is Kun; Due south is the Qian position of the innate eight trigrams, which is xxxheavenxxx. On the afternoon of the midsummer, the dragon runs to the central (dry) position of the due south, which is the day when the Dragon flies into the sky. The movement of the dragon and the stars at four o'clock in a year and the law of events are expounded in the Ci of the book of changes and the qiangua. On the midsummer Dragon Boat Festival, the Dragon moves to the middle of the south, corresponding to the fifth line of the qiangua, xxxflying dragon in the skyxxx. In the book of changes, based on the eight trigrams, 64 double trigrams are composed of two overlapping ones; The heavy divinatory symbol Qian is formed by the superposition of the upper and lower divinatory symbols. Its shape is composed of six Yang Qi; It is necessary to count from the bottom to the top, and Yang is also called xxxNinexxx, so the fifth from the bottom is called xxxNinth Fivexxx; In the upper Qian divinatory diagram, the nine five elements occupy the middle position, which is called xxxDezhongxxx. Moreover, from the perspective of the overall divinatory diagram, it is in an odd number position, and the Yang element is in an odd position, which is called xxxDezhengxxx. Therefore, the nine five elements are both xxxDezhongxxx and xxxDezhengxxx. From its position, it is the position of great luck. The xxxflying dragon in the skyxxx in the ninth five year plan is the most auspicious one in the qiangua in the book of changes.

Ancient festivals are the carrier of inheriting ancient culture, and the origin of ancient festivals is closely related to ancient culture. On the afternoon of the midsummer afternoon, the Dragon soared to the sky in the middle of the south for seven nights. The book of changes calls it xxxflying dragon in the skyxxx. The Dragon Star is in the position of xxxZhongzhengxxx, which is both xxxZhongzhongxxx and xxxZhengzhengxxx. It is a auspicious celestial phenomenon. xxxDragonxxx is the original belief of the ancient Baiyue ancestors. The midsummer Dragon Boat Festival is the auspicious day of xxxflying dragon in the skyxxx. The ancestors held some festive activities on the Dragon Boat Festival, especially the corresponding dragon related activities, such as dragon totem sacrifice, Dragon Boat picking and so on, or took this auspicious day to do some activities to pray for good fortune, suppress evil and fight against disasters. Although it is difficult to know the ancient sacrificial ceremonies, we can still find some ancient customs relics from later festivals. The Dragon Boat Festival culture fully embodies the Chinese nation's natural concept of xxxharmony between nature and manxxx. The Dragon Boat Festival is a cultural treasure left by our ancestors. It not only clearly records the rich and colorful social life and cultural content of our ancestors, but also accumulates profound historical and cultural connotation.
