never enjoy the Dragon Boat Festival for year.
But I thought it extremely necessary to make it a legal holiday,for its long history!

Dragon Boat Festival originated in Guandong didn't it?
So that is why it didn't take off in the rest of China.


no, definitly,  the festival is initially from Zhejiang province,  because the festival is to commemorate QuYan's dead, as we know.

but the question is that why the dragon boat festival is more popular in Guangdong then other provinces.

I think the concept of Guangdongness is the most important reason.
