这是一个故事的一个人,他把自己扔进了河里。他的国家是输给了另一个王国。渔民尝试保存他,和他的灵魂。他们击败沉重的鼓声。并把米饭放进河里。他环游并写诗。他们每年举办,龙舟竞渡。龙舟主要用于乐趣。而教学,突出的历史和文化的这一历史性事件。我选择这个,因为我喜欢中国的传统和它今天庆祝方式。

The story is of a man by the name of Qu Yuan who was a great patriot  of China. He traveled around the Country creating poetry expressing his love and admiration of his country. When he learned of his kingdoms  take over by a rival one in 277 B.C, Qu Yuan threw himself into the Mei Lo River. 

Fishers and people alike loved him, and then try to save him by racing their fishing boats to the middle of the river. They played their drums, and splashed the water to keep the fish away from his body and to keep away the evil spirits. To honor his soul, and to keep it fed, they scattered rice into the water. 

Every year, they hold the, Dragon Boat Festival. The boat races are primarily used for fun. While      teaching and highlighting the history and culture of this historic event.

I chose this because I love Chinese tradition, and the way it is celebrated today.
