Dragon Boat Race Greeting Card by Fabienne Veryepe
According to popular legend, the Dragon Boat Festival (also known as Tuen Ng) originates from the Zhou Dynasty where Qu Yuan, a well-known poet, was banished for opposing an alliance the King made with an enemy state. In protest, he drowned himself by jumping in the river. The local people, who admired him, raced out in their boats to save him. When his body could not be found, they splashed the water with their paddles, beat drums and threw parcels of rice into the water to distract the fish from eating his body.
