The 5th day of the fifth month of the Chinese lunar calendar is the Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dragon Boat Festival, the May Festival and the five day. It is a traditional Chinese festival. Before the spring and Autumn Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival was a holiday for disease and epidemic prevention, after which the patriotic poet Qu Yuan became a festival for the Chinese Han people to sacrifice to Qu Yuan and to cherish the feelings of the Chinese people Gao Jie.
Since then, Qu Yuan's name has been immortal and patriotic spirit has spread to all parts of China. However, there are exceptions, the Dragon Boat Festival in the east Wu area has never been commemorating Qu Yuan, but it is to commemorate Wu Zixu in the river in May 5th, and the custom of the Dragon Boat Race in the Wu Yue area and the tribal totem in this day is much earlier than the spring and Autumn period.

"Dragon Boat Festival" is one of the national statutory holidays and has been listed in the world's list of intangible cultural heritage.
