June 14th is our Dragon Boat Festival. All Chinese people will have a holiday to celebrate on this day.
The Dragon Boat Festival was originally a festival created by ancestors to worship the dragon ancestors and pray for blessings and evil spirits. It is said that Qu Yuan, a poet of Chu during the Warring States Period, committed suicide by jumping on the Miluo River on May 5th. Later, people also took the Dragon Boat Festival as a festival to commemorate Qu Yuan.
China also has the custom of collecting herbs and boiling water for bathing during the Dragon Boat Festival, so it is also known as the Yulan Festival. Herbs collected on this day are the most effective and effective in curing skin diseases and removing evil spirits.
May you get rid of the evil spirits, drive away the virus, and bring you health on the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival.
