On June 18th, we had a one-day holiday for the Dragon Boat Festival which is one of the 4 traditional Chinese folk festivals. This festival is originated in the ancient China and in the year of 2006, it became the first Chinese national holiday to be declared as a world intangible cultural heritage.
Nowadays, in every fifth day of the fifth lunar month, we’ll have the Dragon Boat races and eat glutinous rice dumplings to commemorate a national hero Qu Yuan. There is also different custom in different regions of China, such as drinking realgar wine or flying kites, etc. in some places.
