Today, it is the Dragon Boat Festival. My grandma and grandpa came to my house. My grandmother said to me: "their families hang mugwort calamus, eat zongzi, go up the hill and pick green, and eat zongzi and make zongzi. Early in the morning, I followed my grandma pack up, first of all take out two pieces of leaves, one large and one small learn to the appearance of the grandmother out of the corner, again a little bit on the folded Angle cone into the soak glutinous rice, some red bean paste, and glutinous rice was built. I started to be a little smug, thinking: its hard for me to make a simple dumpling. But when I put the leaves back on, the glutinous rice was like a naughty child who didnt listen to my commands and jumped out in succession. I was like a cat on hot bricks today, fortunately, my grandma solution for me get some glutinous rice around a bit, I breathed a sigh of relief, the in the mind of a heavy piece of rock. After a few setbacks, I finally got to the last step. I took the palm rope and wrapped it in a circle and then I gave it to my grandmother. It was then that I realized that zongzi was a handicraft work and it was very difficult to wrap up.
This time the Dragon Boat Festival can be really interesting, not only I will make dumplings, but also know that if there is a setback, I will also climb up and try again!
Today, I see a lot of zongzi at home.
My favorite food is jujube rice dumplings, I took a bite to eat, sweet, sticky, delicious, I ate and ask a mother: "why do you want to eat zongzi today?" "Today is the fifth Dragon Boat Festival on the fifth day of may," said the mother. "eating zongzi is a tribute to the great poet qu yuan, and there is also a place for the dragon boat race to commemorate him."
I eat the fragrant rice dumplings. Understand the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival.

Said so much, I believe we all know the Dragon Boat Festival.
Duanwu Festival is a traditional Chinese festival held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. It is also known as the Double Fifth. It has since been celebrated, in various ways, in other parts of East Asia as well. In the West, its commonly known as Dragon Boat Festival.
The exact origins of Duan Wu are unclear, but one traditional view holds that the festival memorializes the Chinese poet Qu Yuan (c. 340 BC-278 BC) of the Warring States Period. He committed suicide by drowning himself in a river because he was disgusted by the corruption of the Chu government. The local people, knowing him to be a good man, decided to throw food into the river to feed the fish so they would not eat Qus body. They also sat on long, narrow paddle boats called dragon boats, and tried to scare the fish away by the thundering sound of drums aboard the boat and the fierce looking carved dragon head on the boats prow.
In the early years of the Chinese Republic, Duan Wu was also celebrated as "Poets Day," due to Qu Yuans status as Chinas first poet of personal renown.
Today, people eat bamboo-wrapped steamed glutinous rice dumplings called zongzi (the food originally intended to feed the fish) and race dragon boats in memory of Qus dramatic death.
