Story of Qu Yuan
In Chinese history, Qu Yuan was a poet and a top advisor during the Warring States period for the State of Chu.
He was accused of treason and was exiled by the king of Chu.
(他被控告有叛国罪，被楚王流放） After being exiled, Qu Yuan expressed his love and passion for his country by writing many poems.
On the 5th day of the 5th lunar month, Qu Yuan drowned himself because he couldn’t bear to see his country being conquered by the state of Qin.
When the local villagers heard this news they were distraught, so they set out in their fishing boats to look for Qu Yuan’s body, but they couldn't find it.
So instead, they threw lumps of rice into the river so that the fish or any hungry beasts would eat that rice instead of eating Qu Yuan’s body.
And to remember Qu Yuan, people started to race boats and eat rice dumplings on this day.
What do people do during the Dragon Boat Festival?
It is a tradition to eat rice dumplings.
It is customary to watch dragon boat racing.
During the festival, people drink realgar wine and hang mugwort leaves on the door to repel bad spirits and diseases.
