Why and Who Should Wear This Bracelet?
Zongzi made of sticky rice stuffed with special fillings and wrapped up in Argy-wormwood leaves is a traditional Chinese food eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival to memorialize Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese poet who lived 2300 years ago in State of Chu in Warring States Period.
An important custom during the Dragon Boat Festival is to tie five-colour tread to a child's wrists or ankles. Five-colour thread holds special significance in that it is thought to contain magical and healing properties. Children are not permitted to speak while their parents tie the five-colour thread for them, neither are they allowed to remove it until the specified time. Only after the first summer rainfall can the children throw the thread into the river. This is thought to protect the children from plague and diseases.
Please note that the color of the Zongzi will be sent randomly.
