The fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar month is the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional Chinese festival, also known as the "Duanyang Festival" and "Noonday Festival".
The Dragon Boat Festival is coming, and the first thing we think of is the dumplings. Why do you think of zongzi when you mention the Dragon Boat Festival? Here, we have to say the origin of the next Dragon Boat Festival.
The word "end" has the meaning of "initial", so "end five" means "tenth five." According to the calendar, May is the "noon" month, so "Duanwu" gradually became "Duanwu". "Yan Jing Sui Ji Jiu" records "the fifth day is also the phonetic change of the end of May and the fifth." There are several origins about the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival. Among them, what is more widely known is: The Dragon Boat Festival is to commemorate the death of the patriotic poet Qu Yuan of Chu. According to "Continued Qi Xie Ji", Qu Yuan died in the 5th day of May in the Luo River and died in Chu.
Therefore, during the Dragon Boat Festival, there is the custom of eating dumplings. Of course, in addition to Bao Zongzi, in our hometown of Zhangzhou, there are dragon boat races and the custom of hanging wormwood on the door.
On the occasion of this festival, Zhangzhou Wanli Machinery Equipment Co., Ltd. also prepared Dragon Boat Dumplings for our Wanli employees. I hope everyone can celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival.
