Legend has it that in the spring and autumn period and the warring states period, chu had a patriotic minister called qu yuan. Qu yuan was not only a minister, but also a famous writer, statesman and poet. At that time, the seven kingdoms stood at the top, and qin was the strongest, and qin was the most ambitious. At that time, the state of chu had no way, and the defense was not good. It was easy to defeat, and naturally became the first choice. Qu yuan early to perceive this, quick-minded, saying the king, king hope to strengthen the defense and don't let the stratagem of qin, chu and good medicine for health tastes bitter to the mouth, advice when most needed is least heeded to the truth, that qu yuan look down upon his kingdom, the qu yuan transferred to Mimi luo, qu yuan was very sad, very grievance, themselves coaxed fortified monarch, king does not listen, still as malicious. Finally, qu yuan couldn't help but jumped into the river on June 22. The water fire is heartless, qu yuan was swallowed up by the river water at once, the people know that qu yuan is a good official, so the river opened the boat, rushed to rescue qu yuan, but how did this get to? At that time, people said that there were jiaolong in the water, they ate qu yuan's body, and the jiaolong didn't eat the body when he was full. In the future, the people call the day of qu yuan's self-sacrifice as the Dragon Boat Festival, on this day of the year, people will pack zongzi, rowing dragon boat, to pay tribute to qu yuan. That's how the Dragon Boat Festival comes.
Remember the Dragon Boat Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival, I go with my parents to my grandmother's home, at that time the Dragon Boat Festival is more prosperous, almost every year dragon boat. This year is no exception.
