Why Chinese Eat Dumplings Dragon Boat Race For The Dragon Boat Festival Jun 15, 2018

Do you know why chinese people held dragon boat race and eating dumplings during this festival ?


In order to commemorate Qu Yuan, Qu Yuan was a great poet of the Chu State during the Warring States Period. He was patriotic and loved the people and was persecuted by traitors. After hearing the news that the Qin Army had broken through the capital of Chu, it was not the battle of Qin that destroyed the Chu and it should have been a battle of Chu. With grief and indignation, in 278 BC on the fifth day of May in the lunar calendar, Baoshi entered Xiluo River and died. The people heard that they went to the river to salvage and put the mule into the river to invade his body with a waterproof family. Later on, it became a custom of eating dumplings and eating dumplings.

The dumplings are for fish, so that they do not harm the corpses of the sages. The people competed for boating to Dongting Lake to find their bodies. Later it evolved into the custom of today's dragon boat racing.
