“端午节”The Dragon Boat Festival 

“端午节”的由来

端午节,又称五五节,因为端午节是在农历的五月五日,是中国很重要的三个节日之一,其他两个分别是中秋节和农历新年。

这个节日的由来是古代中国有一位博学多闻的官吏屈原,他是一位爱民而且又受到崇拜的官吏,但是由于一位充满嫉妒的官吏陷害,从此在朝廷中被皇帝所冷落。由于无法获得皇帝的重视,屈原在忧郁的情况下投汨罗江自尽。

众所周知,端午节(the Chu Emperor)是为了纪念楚国的大夫屈原(Qu Yuan),他因为对朝廷的贪污腐败感到绝望而投河自尽。镇上的人纷纷冲上船去救他,却没有成功。后来大家把米撒到水里,希望把饥饿的鱼群从他的躯体边引开。

在端午节这天,人们都会吃粽子(zongzi),并且举行划龙舟比赛(the traditions of racing dragon boats)。
The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth moon of the lunar calendar. It is one of the most important Chinese festivals, the other two being the Autumn Moon Festival and Chinese New Year。
The origin of this summer festival centers around a scholarly government official named Chu Yuan. He was a good and respected man, but because of the misdeeds of jealous rivals he eventually fell into disfavor in the emperor's court。
Unable to regain the respect of the emperor, in his sorrow Chu Yuan threw himself into the Mi Low river. Because of their admiration for Chu Yuan, the local people living adjacent to the Mi Lo River rushed into their boats to search for him while throwing rice into the waters to appease the river dragons。
Although they were unable to find Chu Yuan, their efforts are still commemorated today during the Dragon Boat Festival。
