At this moment, I suddenly realized that today is the Dragon Boat Festival. I got out of bed quickly, dressed quickly, and with my mother went to the river with great interest.
The air in the river was fresh and pleasant. I picked up the river with my hands, washed my eyes and felt my eyes bright. We as the hustle and bustle of the crowd to the jiangbei park, I saw a long banners that read: jilin songyuan "where the first festival, two golden dragon hovering in the river filled with hydrogen, preparing for the dragon boat game the players were in high spirit, ready to start.

Everyones face was so heavy that sweat could not stop from the head. The scene of the dragon-boat race is both intense and exciting.

Today is Dragon Boat Festival, I cant help thinking of a food - zongzi. Dragon Boat Festival flavor is not without zongzi, Dragon Boat Festival flavor not without warmth, Dragon Boat Festival flavor not without happiness.
When I get up in the morning, I stay in bed. After a while, I was attracted by my mothers words. My mother said that today is the Dragon Boat Festival. I want to go to my grandpas house to eat zongzi. After hearing this, I quickly got up and washed. As soon as grandpa saw me, he said, "eat quickly, just make zongzi." I went back and said a happy Dragon Boat Festival and started eating. I feel very comfortable after eating.
In the afternoon, I "stole" one, peeled off the dumplings, the bright red jujube appeared in front of the eyes, and then a sticky rice fragrance wafted through the nose. My mouth water is three thousand feet, one bite down the dumplings are less than half.

Mother brought up the steamed rice dumplings. I see a lot of zongzi are made of green leaves wrapped in the shape of a triangle. I took off their "green clothes," and the flesh came out. Oh, how sweet! I took a bite immediately. It was delicious! Very soft and fragrant! There are also peanuts, platycodon, and spittle.
Suddenly, I remembered something. Ask the father: why does the Dragon Boat Festival eat zongzi? My father told me that there was a patriotic poet named qu yuan in ancient times. On the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, hate jumped out of the river. In order to salvage him, he was afraid that the big fish would eat him, and he would sprinkle a lot of rice dumplings into the river, and the boats of the dragon boat race to salvage. Later, in order to commemorate him, he agreed to eat zongzi on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month, rowing dragon boats.
Listen to dads story. I finally understand the origin of the Dragon Boat Festival and why eat zongzi. It is to commemorate our country patriotic poet qu yuan!

Besides eating zongzi in this festival,some places also have dragon boat races.It is also in memory of Quyuan.Dragon boat is a quite interesting game which is liked by people deeply.Also there are many other activities that day.In my hometown,we need to eat eggs.I think everyone must have their own ways to celebrate their festival.
