The fifth day of the fifth lunar month is the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional festival commemorated by the ancient patriotic poet qu yuan.
On the day of the Dragon Boat Festival, mother got up early, took out duck eggs and zongzi, and boiled them in a pot. I stood on the edge of the kitchen table and watched the ducks and eggs in the pot. They were green and white and lovely. Soon I could smell the fragrance of the leaves. I can't wait to ask: "cooked?" "The mother replies," ok, ok! So mom took out a boiled zongzi and helped me peel off the zongzi, which was delicious and delicious.
After eating zongzi, I went to the fuzi temple with my mother to buy some sachets and confetti. The small and small scented sachets are delicious and beautiful. I like them. I asked my mother to tie beautiful confetti on my hands and feet. My mother told me that children wearing sachets and confetti could remove the disease.
On my way home, I asked my mother to buy some mugwort. When we got home, we put the grass on both sides of the house. The fragrance of mugwort can repel mosquitoes!
"May 5th, it is the sun. Put in the leaves, wear a sachet. Eat zongzi and sprinkle sugar. Dragon boat is in the water." Whenever I hear the song, I think of the scene of the Dragon Boat Festival.
The Dragon Boat Festival is a patriotic poet qu yuan who died in memory of the river. The dragon boat race is not to save qu yuan. Putting zongzi in the river is a way of feeding the fish and shrimp crabs and no longer eating qu yuan's body. After a long period of evolution, it gradually became the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
The Dragon Boat Festival is also weighted by five, so many customs are associated with the number five. Red, yellow, blue, white and black are tied to a child's neck, wrist, or ankle. "Five sides" : calamus, mugwort, pomegranate flowers, garlic, dragon boat flowers. During the Dragon Boat Festival in the south, eat "five yellow" : yellow fish, cucumber, salted duck, egg yolk, yellow watercress wrapped in zongzi and drink realgar wine.
Oh, I love the Dragon Boat Festival!
