Dragon Boat Festival with Poem

端午节源自天象崇拜,由上古时代祭龙演变而来。因相传,屈原倡导举贤授能,富国强兵,力主联齐抗秦,遭到贵族子兰等人的强烈反对,屈原遭谗去职,被赶出都城,流放到沅。屈原眼看自己的祖国被侵略投江自尽。当地百姓闻讯马上划船捞救。为了寄托哀思,人们荡舟江河之上,此后才逐渐发展成为龙舟竞赛。百姓们又怕江河里的鱼吃掉他的身体,就纷纷回家拿来米团投入江中,以免鱼虾糟蹋屈原的尸体,后来就成了吃粽子的习俗。

The Dragon Boat Festival originated from the celestial worship and evolved from the dragon sacrifice in ancient times. According to legend, Qu Yuan a strong advocate for virtue, strong soldiers, and strong alliance against Qi Qin, but strongly opposed by the noble Zilan and others. Qu Yuan was slandered and removed from the capital and exiled to Yuan. Qu Yuan saw that his motherland was invaded hence committed suicide by jumping into a river. Local people immediately rowed boats tried to rescue him. The people were afraid that the fish in the river would eat his body, so they went home and brought rice balls to dispose of them in the river to prevent the fish and shrimp from ruining the body of Qu Yuan. Later, it became a custom to eat dumplings.

Culture is important to Parkway Durian and in part, we are responsible for preserving and promoting our culture. Although the Dragon Boat Festival is part of the Chinese culture, anyone from any race can be part of it if one wishes to. Our culture defines us and it is part of our identity.

海上生明月,天涯共此时。

情人怨遥夜,竟夕起相思。

灭烛怜光满,披衣觉露滋。

不堪盈手赠,还寝梦佳期。
