Dragon Boat Festival holiday

The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth moon of the lunar calendar. 


The origin of this summer festival centers around a scholarly government official named Chu Yuan. He was a good and respected man,but because of the misdeeds of jealous rivals he eventually fell into disfavor in the emperor's court.   

Unable to regain the respect of the emperor,in his sorrow Chu Yuan threw himself into the Mi Low river. Because of their admiration for Chu Yuan, the local people living adjacent to the Mi Lo River rushed into their boats to search for him while throwing rice into the waters to appease the river dragons.  


Although they were unable to find Chu Yuan,their efforts are still commemorated today during the Dragon Boat Festival.

Sanland will have a holiday from 7th to 9th . June. We will come back on 10th,June.

Thanks for your support. Wish you all have a nice holiday!
