Dear Valued Customer,

We are pleased to let you know that we will have 3-day public holiday to celebrate Chinese dragon boat festival from May 16 to May 18

During this period, our sales person will check email and reply as usual, while since most of the Chinese companies don’t work during holiday, it might be hard to get necessary information from our vendors/partners, which makes it difficult to reply your inquiry. So it’s high appreciated if you could contact us as soon as possible once you could think of any question before holiday, and then we could arrange to prepare in advance.

For any urgent matters, please call us at 0086-13311852640.

Thank you and take care!

****Some interesting things about dragon boat festival Day


The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival is a significant holiday celebrated in China, and the one with the longest history. The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated by boat races in the shape of dragons. Competing teams row their boats forward to a drumbeat racing to reach the finish end first.


The boat races during the Dragon Boat Festival are traditional customs to attempts to rescue the patriotic poet Chu Yuan. Chu Yuan drowned on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month in 277 B.C. Chinese citizens now throw bamboo leaves filled with cooked rice into the water. Therefore the fish could eat the rice rather than the hero poet. This later on turned into the custom of eating rice dumplings.

The celebration's is a time for protection from evil and disease for the rest of the year. It is done so by different practices such as hanging healthy herbs on the front door, drinking nutritious concoctions, and displaying portraits of evil's nemesis, Chung Kuei. If one manages to stand an egg on it's end at exactly 12:00 noon, the following year will be a lucky one.
