In order to prevent the diseases and disperse evil spirits, at Dragon Boat Festival, many families decorate their front doors with a bouquet of sweet flag (acorus calamus) , and Wormwood, as well as the Chung Kuei‘s (a legendary god who can defeat ghost) portraits. Adults drink Hsiung Huang wine (arsenic sulphide contained wine) , and children wear herbal sachets. These items are said to have the properties of dispelling the evil sprits and guarding one‘s security and peace. From a more modern perspective, our ancestors’view of celebrating Dragon Boat Festivals, has its unique value indeed; at the beginning of the summer, when various harmful insects are breeding actively, the Dragon Boat Festival serves as a reminder to everyone to working on hygiene issues and disease prevention. While the sweet flag, the wormwood and Hsiung Huang wine indeed helped our ancestors traditionally, people should seek more aggressive and improved approaches to the ways of health prevention today. That is how modern people can pass on the wisdom of our ancestors.Source(s): 自己+字典
