However, Qu Yuan’s proposal was opposed by the old school headed by Shang Guan doctor Jin Shang, and Qu Yuan was constantly vilified in front of Chu Huai King, and Chu Huai King gradually alienated qu Yuan. Pained by his lofty ambitions, qu Yuan, with uncontrollable melancholy and indignation, wrote immortal poems, such as Li Sao, Tian Xiang, and so on. In 221 BC, Qin captured the eight cities of Chu, and then sent emissaries to Qin to discuss peace. Qu Yuan saw through the plot of the king of Qin, risking his death into the palace to state his interests, Chu Huai King not only refused to listen, but expelled Qu Yuan from Yingdu. The King of Chu Huai attended the meeting as scheduled, and was imprisoned as soon as he arrived in the state of Qin.

The fishermen on the river and the people on the shore heard that Dr. qu Yuan had killed himself in the river, and they all came to the river one after another, struggling to salvage qu Yuan’s body (the custom later evolved into a dragon boat race). People one after another took out their zongzi at home and poured eggs into the river. If you let the fish eat, you won’t bite and bend the doctor’s body. In addition, he poured realgar wine into the river in order to faint the dragon and water beast and save the body of qu Yuan from injury. Before long, a dizzy dragon floated on the water, and the dragon’s beard was still covered with a piece of doctor qu’s skirt. People pulled the dragon ashore, drew his muscles, and wrapped them in the children’s hands and necks, and wiped them with realgar wine. Some write a word “king” on the forehead of the child, so that the viper does not dare to harm them. Since then, in early May, qu Yuan’s martyrdom day, the people of Chu go to the river to row dragon boats, cast zongzi, drink realgar wine to commemorate the poet, Dragon Boat Festival custom is thus passed down.
