For thousands of years, various celebrating activities are held all around the country. Eating zongzi and racing dragon boats are the most pertinent ones, which are said to be in memory of Qu Yuan, a great poet.

Dragon Boat Festival is a Chinese traditional festival. It falls on the fifth day of May in the lunar calendar. A day before this festival, my mother and grandmother began to make zongzi.
Of course, I would act as assistant. But it turned out that I was more of a hindrance than a help. When they finished, they started to cook them. This process needed a long time, because I could have them in the next day.
Zongzi was very delicious. On the day of dragon boat festival, our family prepared for dinner after having breakfast. Everyone of my family will come back home for the solid diet.
Chicken is indispensable on the dinner desk in Chinese traditional festival. There were many delicious foods, which made me watering. I ate lots of them. It is a wonderful festival.
Today, I went to the grandmas home with my father and mother for the Dragon Boat Festival. When we entered the door, grandma said, "today is Dragon Boat Festival. Lets make dumplings." We promised. Grandma said, "bamboo leaves need to be soaked for a while.
After a while, we began to pack the zongzi. Each of us picked up three pieces of bamboo leaves, grabbed a handful of glutinous rice with our hands, put them in the bamboo leaves, and put on some big red dates. And then wrap it into a cone. Im glad to have a zongzi wrapped up. I said to grandma, "the dumplings are so simple. Grandma said, "the real bag is not easy!" After finishing the package, the dumplings were cooked.
Our whole family is very happy to eat sweet rice dumplings.
This year, the Dragon Boat Festival is on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
Everyone knows that Dragon Boat Festival can dragon boat and eat seeds. But this year, Im not the same.
In the morning I opened my eyes and caught my brother in a noisy voice. Come out, theyre eating the seeds! I couldnt wait to brush my teeth and grab a seed to eat. At noon, my brother and I took a "healthy bath". Soon I and my brother were in the water.
Even though I didnt have the grass. But I had an interesting Dragon Boat Festival.
Qu Yuan , an honest minister who is said to have committed suicide by drowning himself in a river. Qu was a minister of the State of Chu situated in present-day Hunan and Hubei provinces, during theWarring States Period(475-221BC)(战国时期).
He was upright, loyal and highly esteemed for his wise counsel that brought peace and prosperity to the state.
However, when a dishonest and corrupt prince vilified Qu, he was disgraced and dismissed from office.
Realizing that the country was now in the hands of evil and corrupt officials, Qu grabbed a large stone and leapt into the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth month. Nearby fishermen rushed over to try and save him but were unable to even recover his body.
Thereafter, the state declined and was eventually conquered by the State of Qin.
