How Antaisolar celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival ?

The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth moon of the lunar calendar. On the last working day before the three-day holiday, we held a small Zongzi (sticky rice dumplings) making race, organized in groups, to celebrate this festival. All the guys participated tried their best to make more Zongzi and finally get the gifts as a reward.




What is Zongzi】Zongzi (Sticky rice dumplings)are pyramid-shaped dumplings made of glutinous rice, stuffed with different fillings and wrapped into bamboo or reed leaves.


The origin of Dragon Boat Festival】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 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 river rushed into their boats to search 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. Eating zongzi and Dragon boat racing are the most popular custom in this festival.
