Though heartbroken to see his country being intruded, Qu Yuan never abandoned his faith and country. On May 5th(in Chinese lunar calendar), after writing down his last poem, Qu Yuan drowned himself in Miluo River(a branch of Yangtze River) as a gesture of dying along with his beloved motherland.

Why is it called Duan Wu Jie? The Dragon Boat Festival is called Duan wu Jie (端午节) in Mandarin Chinese. Duan (端) means ‘start’, while wu (午) means ‘noon’, but also ‘the fifth solar month’ in the traditional Chinese calendar (approximately June 6 – July 6), centered around the summer solstice. ‘The month of noon’ marks the middle of summer.

The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dragon Boat Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival, and the Tianzhong Festival, was originally a festival originated  by ancient ancestors to worship the dragon ancestors, pray for blessings and ward off evil spirits. In the midsummer Dragon Boat Festival, the Canglong Qi Su soared in the middle of the sky in the south, and was in the most “center” position in the whole year, that is, as the line of the fifth line of “The Book of Changes•Qian Gua”: “Flying Dragon is in the Sky”. The Dragon Boat Festival is due to legend that Qu Yuan, a poet of Chu State during the Warring States Period, committed suicide by jumping on the Miluo River on May 5. Later, people also took the Dragon Boat Festival as a festival to commemorate Qu Yuan. The fragrance of dumplings and dragon boats became one of the four traditional festivals in China.
