What is the “Dragon Boat Festival” in China?

| 什么是中国的端午节?

Since the adjustment in 2018, more traditional Chinese festivals have been promoted as the legal Chinese holidays, such as the DuanWu Festival, etc.

自2008年中国节假日经过调整后,中国增加更多传统节日为中国法定节日,包括端午节等。

The DuanWu Festival, as one of the oldest traditional festivals in China with over 2000 years’ history, nowadays become one of China’s important legal festivals and holidays.

端午节,是中国民间的最古老的传统节日之一,已有两千多年历史,现在已是中国法定的重要节日之一。

It is usually celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

通常按中国农历计算,每年农历五月的第五天为中国的端午节。

The DuanWu Festival originated from the custom that the Chinese ancient ancestor held boat races for the worship of Dragon God, paying homage and their fears to the rivers and seas in nature.

端午节,起源于上古先民以龙舟竞渡的形式祭祀龙祖,表达对大自然中的河海的敬畏。

It is also the festival for the Chinese people to recall the memory of Qu Yuan, the famous ancient Chinese poet living in Chu dynasty and dying by jumping into the Miluo River (now in Hubei province) , with lots of well-known poems left for thousands of years such as “Li Sao” in the Poetry of Chu (Chu Ci).

它也是中国人民表达对古代逝于汨罗江(现湖北省内)并留下诸如《楚辞· 离骚》等千年名作的著名楚国诗人屈原的纪念之日。

Therefore, the Chinese DuanWu festival is also called the Dragon Boat Festival, Zongzi Festival and more.

因此,端午节在中国可称作龙舟节,或粽子节 等等。

Due to its falling in the early summer, the Dragon Boat Festival is also the period for all Chinese ethnic groups to go fitness, prevent from plague spreading, dispel virus diseases, and pray for health.

因通常在夏初时节,端午节也是中国各民族全民健身、防疫祛病、避瘟驱毒、祈求健康的日子。
