玩的同时,你知道为什么我们有假期吗?

But do you know why we have a vacation again?

这个月,我们又迎来了一个中国的传统节日——端午节。

 

每年农历五月初五是端午节。最初,这个节日是为了纪念中国历史上伟大的诗人屈原,相传,屈原就是在这一天不满朝政腐败而投河自尽的。

The Dragon Boat Festival is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month according to the Chinese calendar. This festival is to commemorate the death of QU Yuan, an upright and honest poet and statesman who is said to have committed suicide by drowning himself in a river.

每年的端午节,人们会举办赛龙舟的活动,在平静的江面上,无数龙舟竞渡,十分热闹。当然,还有一项更重要的活动,就是大家熟悉的吃粽子啦!粽子,是一种用芦苇叶包裹糯米、红豆、猪肉等馅料的休闲小吃,据说在古代,人们还会把包好的粽子投进河里,送给屈原吃。

The most important activity of this festival is the Dragon Boat races. It symbolizes people‘s attempts to rescue Qu Yuan. In the current period, these races also demonstrate the virtues of cooperation and teamwork. Besides,the festival has also been marked by eating Zong zi (sticky rice dumpling). Zong zi is made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves. People who mourned the death of Qu threw Zong zi into the river to feed his ghost every year.

随着时代发展,现在的端午节,更像是人们祈求平安健康的节日。人们保持着赛龙舟、吃粽子、挂艾草的习惯,也让我们看到了丰富深刻的传统文化。

With the changes of the times, the memorial turns to be a time for protection from evil and disease for the rest of year. People will hang healthy herbs on the front door to clear the bad luck of the house. Although the significance of the festival might be different with the past, it still gives the observer an opportunity to glimpse a part of the rich Chinese cultural heritage.

看了这些介绍,相信大家都对端午节充满了好奇吧!你有没有兴趣自己包个粽子,感受一下传统的中国节日气氛?别着急,我们的包粽子活动也马上就来了!6月15日,我们一起去学习包粽子和其他关于端午节的知识吧。也欢迎你带上你的外国朋友一起来参加。
