AsianDate is one of the most popular international dating services for singles looking for love in Asia.

The party marking the Dragon Boat Festival continues this tradition and the dating experts want all its members to head online on June 7 to enjoy the festivities together.
China comes alive during this event and it is a wonderful time to discover all the traditions that occur during the party period. The Dragon Boat Festival is also known as the Double Fifth Festival because it is held on the fifth day of the fifth month on the lunar calendar. Legend has it that the festival originated from ancestors going out on boats in search of the body of poet Qu Yuan (343–278 BC), who had drowned himself in a river between 343-278 BC.
The festival has always been a traditional holiday in China. During the races, dragon boat teams paddle at a furious pace accompanied by the sound of beating drums. It is believed that the winning team will attract good luck and is expected to enjoy happy times in the following year.
The action-packed Dragon Boat Festival party focuses on the summer solstice and includes dragon boat racing, consuming rice wine, and eating sticky rice balls called zongzi. People also celebrate the memory of the well-known mythical figure Zhong Kui by decorating their home with a special icon.
Members can get in touch with their Chinese matches using AnastasiaDate’s unique features such as Live Chat, CallMe and others to celebrate the joys of Dragon Boat Festival.
