This feast used to be a game for the ancient Chinese Poets creating elegant poetry. Wherever poets gather around the river side, they fill up their bowls with liquor, then wafted it on the rill from upriver to downriver. When the bowl floated to poets who wait at downriver side, they needed to recite a poem before they took the bowl. It was the way poets saluted to a love story (Dong-you & Giour) from the 13th of the Chinese “24 Paragons of Filial Piety” Since then, This kind of gathering has been called : Floating Goblet Feast
