Celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival at FPIC

As we approach the vibrant and culturally rich Dragon Boat Festival, FPIC takes pride in celebrating this traditional holiday with our esteemed employees. This year, we are excited to share the origins and customs of this cherished festival and express our heartfelt gratitude and best wishes to all our employees and their families.


The Origins of the Dragon Boat Festival

The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival, is a significant cultural holiday in China that dates back over 2,000 years. This festival commemorates the life and death of the esteemed Chinese poet and minister Qu Yuan. Known for his patriotism and contributions to classical poetry, Qu Yuan is said to have drowned himself in the Miluo River as a protest against the corruption of the era. The local people, who admired and respected him deeply, raced out in their boats to save him or retrieve his body. They also threw rice into the river to distract the fish and protect his body, which led to the traditional practice of eating zongzi (sticky rice dumplings).


Celebratory Activities

The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated with a variety of activities that highlight its historical significance and cultural heritage. Key activities include:

  • Dragon Boat Racing: One of the most exhilarating traditions, teams paddle their boats in synchronization, symbolizing the attempts to rescue Qu Yuan.
  • Eating Zongzi: Sticky rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves are enjoyed to honor the memory of Qu Yuan.
  • Wearing Perfumed Sachets: These are believed to protect from evil spirits and disease.
  • Drinking Realgar Wine: This traditional drink is thought to ward off evil spirits and protect against diseases.


FPIC’s Celebration and Employee Appreciation

To honor the Dragon Boat Festival and show our appreciation for our dedicated team, FPIC will be observing a holiday on the day of the festival. We have also prepared a special gift box containing zongzi and salted duck eggs for each employee. This gesture is our way of celebrating the festival together and sharing our best wishes for a prosperous and joyful holiday season.
