  “五月五,是端阳。门插艾,香满堂。吃粽子,洒白糖。龙舟下水喜洋洋。”听到这首儿歌,就让我想起了端午节。每年五月初五,是我国传统的节日端午节。

  我国民间过端午节是较为隆重的,庆祝的活动也是各种各样。

  赛龙舟,是端午节的主要习俗。相传起源于古时楚国人因舍不得贤臣屈原投江死去,许多人划船追赶拯救。他们争先恐后,追至洞庭湖时不见踪迹。之后每年五月五日划龙舟以纪念之。借划龙舟驱散江中之鱼,以免鱼吃掉屈原的身体。竞渡之习,盛行于吴、越、楚。

  端午节吃粽子,这是中国人民的又一传统习俗。粽子,又叫“角黍”、“筒粽”。其由来已久,花样繁多。

  民谚说:“清明插柳,端午插艾”。在端午节,人们把插艾和菖蒲作为重要内容之一。家家都洒扫庭除,以菖蒲、艾条插于门眉,悬于堂中。并用菖蒲、艾叶、榴花、蒜头、龙船花,制成人形或虎形,称为艾人、艾虎;制成花环、佩饰,美丽芬芳,妇人争相佩戴,用以驱瘴。

  吃粽子、赛龙舟,这两样传统习俗共同编织了一个热热闹闹的端午节。

"May 5 is Dragon Boat Festival. The door is full of incense. Eat zongzi, sprinkle sugar. The dragon boat went into the water happily. " Hearing this song reminds me of the Dragon Boat Festival. The fifth day of May every year is a traditional festival in China.

In China, the Dragon Boat Festival is more solemn and various activities are held.

Dragon boat racing is the main custom of the Dragon Boat Festival. It is said that it originated in ancient times when Chu people were reluctant to give up their virtuous minister Qu Yuan and died in the river. They scrambled to catch up with each other and disappeared when they reached Dongting Lake. After that, the dragon boat was rowed on May 5 every year to commemorate it. By rowing a dragon boat to disperse the fish in the river, so as not to eat Qu Yuan's body. The custom of racing was popular in Wu, Yue and Chu.

Eating zongzi on the Dragon Boat Festival is another traditional custom of the Chinese people. Zongzi, also known as "jiaoshu", "tube zongzi". It has a long history and various patterns.

As a folk saying goes, "willows are inserted during the Qingming Festival, and AI is inserted at the Dragon Boat Festival.". In the Dragon Boat Festival, people take Artemisia argyi and Acorus calamus as one of the important contents. Every family sweeps the courtyard, with calamus, moxa stick inserted in the door eyebrow, hanging in the hall. They are made of Acorus calamus, Artemisia argyi leaves, durian, garlic and dragon boat flower into human or tiger shapes, which are called AI Ren and AI Hu. They are made into wreaths and ornaments, which are beautiful and fragrant. Women compete to wear them to drive off malaria.

Eating zongzi and dragon boat racing, these two traditional customs together weave a lively Dragon Boat Festival.
