Dragon Boat Festival 端午节 Duān Wǔ Jié

The Dragon Boat Festival (端午节 or Duān Wǔ Jié in pīnyīn) is an official public holiday in Mainland China. This traditional holiday, also called the Double Fifth festival, is celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th month of the Chinese lunar calendar (called 农历 or nónglì in Chinese). 


The use of the lunar calendar to set the festival’s date means that it is celebrated at a different time every year. Generally, the holiday falls anywhere from the end of May to the end of June according to the Gregorian calendar (阳历, yáng lì).

At MRS, students are asked to perform a traditional dance or draw and colour a picture in which their work will be graded as a project of the Chinese subject.
