It has been a tra­di­tion through­out the cen­turies to wear a bot­tle gourd dur­ing Dragon Boat Fes­ti­val. Both chil­dren and adults alike will wear the gourd not only to keep away the spir­its and sick­ness but also adorn their lapels. These tra­di­tional Chi­nese bot­tle gourds, when worn, al­lude to good for­tune and hap­pi­ness, the tran­quil­iza­tion of dishar­mony and strength­en­ing of the aura of one’s des­tined bless­ings.
