Chinese Culture of Dragon Boat Festival
As one of the main activities, dragon boat race has varying level of popularity in China. The dragon boat race custom started in southern China, where the fifth lunar day of the fifth lunar month was selected as a totem ceremony. The dragon was the main symbol on the totem, because the Chinese believe that they are sons of the dragon. Later the Chinese connected this ceremony with the Duanwu Festival. Dragon Boat Race events are popular in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
