Qu Yuan AND other national patriots? Hmm .. this is new.Originally posted by vince69:[quote=http://www.rgs.edu.sg/aec/duanwujie.html]Duan Wu Jie[/quote]
Duan Wu Jie, commonly known as the Dumpling Festival, is a day for commemorating a Chinese poet Qu Yuan and other national patriots. This day falls on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, and it reminds oneself of one's responsibilities and duties to one's country. Chinese eat rice dumplings and participate in dragon boat competitions on this day.
Just a note, the fifth day of the fith lunar month this year is 31May2006, meaning end of this month.
