Dragon Boat Festival 2022--Chinese Culture

Why Is Dragon Boat Festival So Important?

Many believe that Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated to commemorate the death of Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese poet, and minister known for his patriotism and contributions to classical poetry, who eventually became a national hero. 

Actually, during the early hot days of summer, people would easily fall ill and epidemics spread. So fifth lunar month is known as the ‘month of poison’. Therefore, Dragon Boat Festival was originally regarded as a traditional medical and health festival. 

It is traditionally a festival for people to (ceremonially) come against diseases and poisonous insects. As the coronavirus pandemic continues across the world, this year's Dragon Boat Festival should focus on health.
