There is a long story for the origin of the Dragon Boat Day, to make the long story short, people didn't want any fish to eat Qu Yuan's corpse after he jumped into a river to commit suicide, so they cooked a lot of sticky rice to feed the fish in the river. Referring to the reason for Qu Yuan to commit suicide, it is said, Quan Yuan couldn't do anything when his country was at the point of crisis, the king didn't accept his sincere advice.
