The Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Festival), a folk festival celebrated for over 2,000 years. Historically, during the festival, Chinese people practice various customs thought to dispel disease, and invoke good health.
Dragon boat racing is said to originate from the legend of people paddling out on boats to seek the body of patriotic poet Qu Yuan (343–278 BC), who drowned himself in a River.
The core lesson of the Dragon Boat Festival is UNITY trumps any challenge.
Happy Dragon Boat Festival.
