About Dragon Boat Festival(Please help me with my writing, thanks a lot) —— Today is the Dragon Boat Festival of China, which is an ancient Chinese traditional festival and one of the national holidays. We have 3 days in total and today is the final day of this holiday. —— At the dragon boat festival, we usually eat zongzi(rice dumplings) and have dragon boat races to celebrate. —— Legend has it that the dragon boat festival was set to commemorate the great patriotic poet Quyuan. He was very loyal and honest, but decided to jump into the river for some reason. —— People rowed their boats to find his corpse after they heard the news but failed. And they decided to drop rice into the river to protect Ququan's body from being eaten by fish. That's why people eat zongzi nowadays in memory of him. —— Mostly, Zongzi is stuffed with rice and some fillings like beans or meat, and wrapped with reed leaves. Generally, Zongzi with beans is sweet while zongzi with meat is salty. —— This morning, I ate a zongzi with meat which is very tasty. I hardly ate zongzi with meat before because I prefer sweet food, but this one really left a good impression on me. —— Thanks for your reading and correction in advance!
