The Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Festival,) is a traditional holiday that commemorates the life and death of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan . The festival occurs on the fifth day of the fifth month on the Chinese lunar calendar. (June18th this year)



What Do People Do?



The Dragon Boat Festival is a celebration where many eat rice dumplings (zongzi), drink realgar wine (xionghuangjiu), and race dragon boats.

 



Activities and games such as making an egg stand at noon were regarded by the ancients as an effective way of preventing disease, evil, while promoting good health and well-being. People sometimes wear talismans to fend off evil spirits or they may hang the picture of Zhong Kui, a guardian against evil spirits, on the door of their homes.

 


In the Republic of China, the festival was also celebrated as "Poets' Day" in honor of Qu Yuan, who is known as China's first poet. Chinese citizens traditionally throw bamboo leaves filled with cooked rice into the water and it is also customary to eat tzungtzu and rice dumplings.
Also June 17th is “Fathers’ Day” , here I wish all the fathers in our blog community Happy Fathers Day, including me (smile)



On a different note, recently some netizens complained to me that they cannot log into my blog and leave messages.
