Summer is here and it’s time to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival! WEMART, our favorite one-stop-shop for all our Asian grocery needs, is excited to offer amazing promotions for this festive season.
Customers are in for a treat during this year’s Dragon Boat Festival as WEMART brings in incredible deals on a wide range of traditional Chinese snacks including Zhong Zi or traditional Chinese rice puddings, snacks, sweets, salted egg yolks, teas, and many more. These delicious treats are perfect for sharing with family and friends during this special time.
The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated in remembrance of Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese poet and minister known for his patriotism and contributions to classical poetry, who eventually became a national hero. Most Chinese nationals observe this tradition by eating sticky dumplings, joining dragon boat races, hanging Chinese mugwort and calamus on doors, drinking realgar wine, and wearing perfume pouches.
In an interview with The Filipino Times, Ms. Hope, Assistant Operation Director at WEMART, said: “Every year, we gather with our families to eat the Zhong Zi to show our respect to one of our national heroes. We look up to him because he really loved his country, and we continue his legacy by keeping this tradition alive for the next generation.”
