Dragon Boat Festival

Hola chicos! Hoy empieza una fiesta cultural china llamada Festival del Barco del Dragón o Duanwu Festival. Se celebra en memoria al poeta y ministro Qu Yuan, muy querido por el pueblo. En la antigua China, este fue acusado de traición y expulsado de la corte, a causa de una intriga y por eso se tiró en el rio Yangtze. Des de entonces el pueblo chino, por miedo que su cuerpo sea comido por los peces, vienen al río y tiran rellenos de arroz enrollados en hojas de bambú ( zongzi-plato tradicional en esta festividad) para que los peces o otros monstruos marinos no se coman su cuerpo. También en su memoria compiten con los barcos-dragón en el río, decoradas con el tradicional dragón asiático símbolo de la energía masculina.

Seguro que es algo muy especial! Me gustaría participar alguna día :)
Besitooos :*

Hello babys! Today starts the Chinese cultural festival called Dragon Boat Festival or Duanwu Festival. It is in the memory of the poet and minister Qu Yuan, very loved by the Chinese people. In the ancient China, he suffered banishment as the victim of a court intrigue and he was exiled. A cause of this he died himself in the Yangtze river. Chinese people loved him, cried for him and to avoid his body could be eaten by the fishes, every year they come to throw into the river glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves called zongzi- a traditional plate for this festival. Also in his memory they race with the dragon boats, boats decorated with the traditional Asiatic dragon symbol of the masculine energy, into the river.

For sure is something special1 I would love to live it for at least one day! .)

Kisses:*
