2. What is the Dragon Boat Festival and why do we eat rice dumplings
The Dragon Boat Festival is a day when Chinese people commemorate (commemoration) Qu Yuan, a great poet in ancient China, by eating zongzi and having dragon boat races.
In 340 BC, Qu Yuan, a patriotic poet, and doctor of the State of Chu, faced the pain of national subjugation. On May 5th, he threw a boulder into the Biluo River in grief and anger. In order to prevent fish and shrimp from damaging his body, people poured rice into the river with bamboo tubes. in. In the future, in order to express their respect and remembrance for Qu Yuan, every day, people would use bamboo tubes to store rice and throw them into the river for memorial service. This is the origin of the earliest rice dumplings in our country-the "tube dumplings".
zongzi (a sticky/glutinous rice ball with Chinese dates wrapped in reed/bamboo leaves)，many countries in the world also have the custom of eating zongzi.
Peruvians and Filipinos eat rice dumplings on Christmas, and the whole family sits together to celebrate Christmas. Burmese people also like to eat rice dumplings. They use glutinous rice as the main ingredient and cooked bananas and coconut paste as fillings. The main ingredient of Japanese dumplings is rice noodles.
Finally, I wish you all a happy holiday again!
