Hey! I am so excited about this Friday June 7, its the Dragon Boat Festival and me and my friends are ready to race!
Y A Y !
The town is stoked for the Duanwu festival. They are all ready cooking the zongzi,rice dumplings, which is a custom to have during the Dragon Boat Festival.
Dragon Boat racing has its history traced back for more than 2000 years. It all started when superstious Chinese Villagers celebrated the 5th day of the 5th lunar month. Racing was held to avert misfortune and to worship the dragon.
One of the racing dragon boats have some characteristics such as being long and narrow. These boats can hold up to at least 10 people!
I hope your brains are now filled with knowledge about the Dragon Boat Festival! Now it is time to get racing! Wish me luck...
