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 is the Dragon Boat Festival, but I don’t know the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival. Mother told me that, during the warring states period, chu qu yuan, a minister, SIMS speak ill of qu yuan to the emperor, the emperor no longer trust of qu yuan and his exiled to the distance, he jumped river being the very sad. In order to commemorate him, the common people threw food into the river and formed the Dragon Boat Festival.
