今天突然有个客户问我“what's is Dragon boat festival"and why it's called that".我想了一下，然后这样跟他解释了，他表示听懂了。这里跟大家分享一下。
Dragon Boat Festival is a holiday for comememoratingQu Yuan,an ancient patriotic poet in ancient China.Though he loved his country very much but he was banished even accused of treason by bad people of his country at that times.When the capital of his country was captureed by enemies. Qu Yuan committed suicide despairly by drowning himself in the Miluo River.
It’s said that local people, who admired him, raced out in their boats to save him or at least retrieve his body. This is said to have been the origin of dragon boat races. When his body could not be found, they dropped balls of sticky rice into the river so that the fish would eat them instead of Qu Yuan's body. This is said to be the origin of zongzi.文自www.eworldtrade.com
