Dragon Boat Festival:5th day of the 5th lunar month

The Dragon Boat Festival,also called the Duanwu Festival,is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month according to the Chinese calendar.For thousands of years,the festival has been marked by eating zongzi(glutinous rice wrapped to form a pyramid using bamboo or reed leaves) and racing dragon boats.


The people of Chu who mourned the death of Qu threw rice into the river to feed his ghost every year on the fifth day of the fifth month.But one year,the spirit of Qu appeared and told the mourners that a huge reptile in the river had stolen the rice.the spirrit them advised them to wrap the rice in silk and bind it with five different color threads before tossing it into the river.

The  dragon-boat races symbolize the many attempts to rescue and recover Qu's body.A typical dragon boat ranges from 50-100 feet in lenth,with a beam of about 5.5 feet,accommodating two paddlers seated side by side.
