The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Duanyang Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival, the Chongwu Festival, the Dragon Festival, the Zhengyang Festival, and the Tianzhong Festival, falls on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month and is a traditional Chinese folk festival.
It was originally a festival founded by the ancestors of the south to worship the ancestors of the dragon; because it is said that Qu Yuan, a poet of the Chu State during the Warring States Period, jumped to the Miluo River on May 5 to commit suicide, and later people also regarded the Dragon Boat Festival as a festival to commemorate Qu Yuan, the source of the Dragon Boat Festival. Since the worship of celestial phenomena, it evolved from the sacrifice of dragons in ancient times.
On the Midsummer Dragon Boat Festival, Canglong Qisu flew to Zhongtian in the south, which is the day when Long Feitian was flying, that is, as the fifth line of "Book of Changes Qian Gua" said: "Flying dragon is in the sky".
