[Xiamen, June 22] – The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dragon Boat Festival, is an important traditional festival in China, celebrated every year on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. This year, people around the world prepare to celebrate the holiday on June 22nd with great anticipation. 

The Dragon Boat Festival originated in China more than 2,000 years ago and has become an important cultural event celebrated by Chinese people around the world. It is a time when the family gathers to commemorate Qu Yuan, a famous poet and statesman in ancient times. 

One of the most distinctive aspects of the Dragon Boat Festival is eating zongzi, a delicious traditional food made of glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves. Fillings range from peanuts, dates, and beans to meats like pork and chicken. Each region of China has its own unique method of making and seasoning zongzi, resulting in a variety of zongzi flavors. 

Besides eating zongzi, another highlight of the Dragon Boat Festival is the wonderful dragon boat race. These races involve long, narrow dragon-like boats that are propelled by rowing teams to the rhythm of drums. The atmosphere was warm, the audience cheered for their favorite team, and the victorious ship received thunderous applause. 
Beyond the festivities, the Dragon Boat Festival also has fascinating legends. One legend tells the story of Qu Yuan, a loyal politician who threw himself into a river in despair over the country's decline. People tried to save him by throwing zongzi into the water so that the fish would not eat his body. This move gave birth to the tradition of zongzi. 

Also, another popular legend associated with this festival is the story of the mythical creature dragon. In Chinese folklore, dragons are believed to be responsible for controlling rain, rivers and water. To ward off evil spirits, people beat drums, tambourines and hang dragon icons during the celebration. 

In recent years, the Dragon Boat Festival has gained international recognition, attracting participants and spectators from all over the world. The festival showcases the vibrancy of Chinese culture and serves as a bridge connecting people of different backgrounds through joyous traditional celebrations.
