The Dragon Boat Festival is one of the important traditional festivals in China.

It is mainly to commemorate the great patriotic poet Qu Yuan. During the Warring States period, Qu Yuan, a minister of the state of Chu, was slandered and exiled. Eventually, he was so heartbroken by the fall of his country that he threw himself into the Miluo River. The local people rowed boats to salvage him and later developed into the custom of dragon boat racing.

People celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival for the following reasons:
● To remember and honor the spirit of Qu Yuan and his patriotism.
● It has rich cultural connotations, such as the tradition of eating zongzi and hanging wormwood. These customs have been passed down through generations, carrying the inheritance of traditional culture.
● It is also a time for people to gather together, enhancing family and social bonds.

For example, every year on the Dragon Boat Festival, families get together to make and eat zongzi, and enjoy the excitement of the dragon boat races, which reflects people's respect for traditions and the pursuit of a harmonious and united atmosphere.
