Dragon Boat Festival

Dragon Boat Festival, one of the traditional Chinese festivals, is dated on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. This festival has many aliases, including Noon Festival, Chongwu Festival, May Festival, and so on.
On the day of Dragon Boat Festival, I tried to learn how to make dumplings. In the process of this, first I need to choose suitable leaves, such as reed leaves, bamboo leaves and so on. Then prepare the filling inside the dumplings with fresh meat and egg yolk. Then, fold the leaves into a funnel shape, put in the filling, then use the leaves to wrap all the rice, and finally tie it with cotton thread.
The origin of the Dragon Boat Festival is that Qu Yuan threw himself into the Miluo River on the 5th of May, and the people of Chu mourned him, and from then on, every year on this day, people would put rice in bamboo tubes into the water as a way to pay tribute to Qu Yuan. Qu Yuan was a reformer in Chu, who worked tirelessly for the prosperity of the country. His concern for the country and his indomitable spirit made people choose to honour him with the Dragon Boat Festival.
The significance of the Dragon Boat Festival is very far-reaching. Firstly, it is a manifestation of love for the country and the nation, and especially a commemoration of Qu Yuan, the embodiment of patriotism, who was worried about the country and the people. Qu Yuan's loyalty and compassion for the people, as well as his sense of family and country, have been immortalised in the course of history through his poetry.
In addition, the Dragon Boat Festival is also an inheritance and promotion of traditional culture. It is not only a festival, but also a piece of history with deep cultural connotations. Through the celebration of Dragon Boat Festival, we can remember the history, pay tribute to the martyrs, not forgetting the heroes of our country, and at the same time shoulder the responsibility as the successor of the new generation.
