The dragon boat festival in our hometown is to wrap zongzi together with the whole family to eat zongzi. Because in ancient times， we had to take an examination of the champion， so we had to eat zongzi and wrap them together， which represented ＂ in the whole family＂.
Our hometown is wrapped in zongzi like this： first， fold two leaves together， then put a layer of mixed glutinous rice on it， then put a layer of mung bean kernels， then put a layer of pickled fatty pork， finally put a layer of mung bean kernels and glutinous rice on each， roll up the leaves and tie the rope. A big zongzi will be wrapped！
Dragon boat races will also be held in our hometown. A drum came， ＂ dragon boat is coming！ ＂ I said excitedly to my mother. People cheered， ＂ come on， come on. ＂ this scene is really busy！
This is the dragon boat festival in our hometown. Come and have a look when you have the opportunity. we welcome you！
The dragon boat festival is here， and my family makes zongzi. Mother washed glutinous rice， peanuts and black beans first， then soaked them in water， and then cleaned the reed leaves. I cut the thread into sections， and the preparatory work was done.
At noon， mother fished out sticky rice， peanuts and black beans together， filtered water， sprinkled some soda ash and stirred evenly. Then， mother rolled two pieces of reed leaves into a top-like shape， filled them with glutinous rice， and then covered the leaves left on them. Finally， use the rope to bind tightly， and a zongzi will be wrapped. Because mother made dumplings for the first time， the dumplings made by mother are very strange， some of them are like grenades， some are like guns， and some are like candies.
After all zongzi are wrapped up， put them in a pressure cooker and cook them for half an hour， and they will be cooked. Open zongzi， yellow glutinous rice， black beans and red peanuts. what a beautiful look！ Bite， especially sweet.
The fifth day of the fifth lunar month is the dragon boat festival. For more than two thousand years， dragon boat festival has been a multi-ethnic folk festival of national fitness， epidemic prevention and disease elimination， plague prevention and poison elimination， and pray for health.
Dragon boat festival， also known as duanyang festival and chung Wu festival， is said to be the day when qu yuan， a great poet in ancient China and one of the four cultural celebrities in the world， threw himself into the gurgling river to die for his country. For more than two thousand years， the fifth day of the fifth lunar month has become a traditional festival to commemorate qu yuan every year. Historical records show that in 278 BC， on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month， qu yuan， a doctor of Chu and a patriotic poet， heard the news that Qin Jun had breached the capital of Chu. he felt sad and angry， and his heart ached. he resolutely wrote his last poem ＂ Huai Sha＂， threw stones into the Miluo river， and sacrificed himself for the country. People along the Yangtze river have led boats racing to salvage， evoking spirits along the water， and throwing zongzi into the river， lest fish and shrimp eat into his body. This custom has lasted for more than 2000 years.
Today is the 5th day of may， which is our traditional festival. that is， dragon boat festival is very popular for both adults and children.
As soon as I got up， my mother put on my purse and colorful thread on my hand. I saw my father holding two gourds. today＇s breakfast is zongzi and eggs. I ate a zongzi and an egg with relish， and two dates were used in the zongzi. Then Zhuang Zhuang came to me with eggs to create eggs， and I made it with a feeling of winning. after a while， I won， and I jumped happily.
Just today， every family has hung up red gourds， inserted mugwort， and ate zongzi and eggs. This really embodies the characteristics of the Chinese nation.
