LIGHT SKY Thoughtful Gift Set: Honoring Tradition, Fostering Wellbeing

As the Dragon Boat Festival approaches, Light Sky is pleased to have curated a selection of gift packages for employees to commemorate this beloved annual event. The festival, also known as Duanwu Festival, holds a profound significance in Chinese culture, with a history that dates back over 2,000 years. It pays homage to the legendary poet and statesman Qu Yuan, who made the ultimate sacrifice for his kingdom. It pays homage to the legendary poet and statesman Qu Yuan, who made the ultimate sacrifice for his kingdom.

Qu Yuan was a Chinese poet and aristocrat in the State of Chu during the Warring States period.  He was deeply devoted to his country and its people, but his noble ideals and honest advice were often disregarded by corrupt officials. Eventually, he committed suicide by wading into the Miluo River in today’s Hunan Province while holding a rock. The reason why he took his life remained controversial and was argued by Chinese scholars for centuries. Typical explanations including martyrdom for his deeply beloved but falling motherland, which was suggested by the philosopher Zhu Xi of the Song dynasty, or feeling extreme despair to the situation of the politics in Chu while his lifelong political dream would never be realized. 

In an attempt to prevent his body from being eaten by fish and to honor his memory, villagers raced out in their boats, beating drums and splashing their paddles in the water. They also threw sticky rice dumplings, or zongzi, into the river to feed the fish and prevent them from consuming Qu Yuan’s body. This tradition evolved into the lively dragon boat races and zongzi-eating customs that are now synonymous with the Dragon Boat Festival.

To honor this rich cultural heritage, Light Sky has thoughtfully assembled a special gift set for its employees. The set has been meticulously crafted to capture the essence of the festival and promote a sense of wellbeing among its recipients.

At the heart of the gift set is the traditional delicacy zongzi, symbolizing the enduring traditions of the festival. Alongside this culinary delight, recipients will discover a stylish and practical water bottle, reflecting Light Sky’s commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle.

These carefully selected items are intended to inspire individuals to stay active, fostering a sense of wellbeing and camaraderie in harmony with the festival’s ethos.

Upon receipt of the gifts, the employees expressed great joy and their countenances were adorned with smiles. Light Sky sends warm wishes for a joyful Dragon Boat Festival. The gift set serves as a tangible reminder of the cherished cultural heritage and the dedication to cultivating a vibrant, healthy, and connected community.
