Dragon Boat Festival is a major festival in China celebrated with great enthusiasm. The festival is popularly known as the Double Fifth Festival as it is held on the 5th day of the 5th month of the Lunar Calendar. There is a lot of fun and action taking place on this important day in the Chinese calendar. The day is a national holiday and commemorates the life and death of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan.
The day also symbolizes the importance of health and fitness, which is displayed by the Chinese youth as they fight hard to race dragon-shaped boats to the winning post. Throwing bamboo leaves filled with cooked rice into the water, eating sticky rice dumplings called Zong-zi, and consuming rice wine also forms part of the traditions associated with Dragon Boat Festival.
The custom of decorating homes with a unique icon to celebrate the memory of mythical figure Zhong Kui is another popular activity among AsianDate’s Chinese members. Many people also believe that if they can balance a raw egg on its end exactly at noon on the Dragon Boat Festival Day, lady luck will smile on them generously for the rest of the year.
AsianDate is encouraging members to come online in large numbers on Dragon Boat Festival Day and communicate with Chinese members to congratulate them and know more about this interesting festival. Members can use advanced communication features on AsianDate such as Live Chat, CallMe, and CamShare to connect easily and communicate effortlessly with Chinese matches.
