为什么会有端午节呢？端午节的由来是什么，你知道吗？Do you know why do we have dumpling festival?
Rumours said that dumpling festival starts from the day of the famous minister called 'chu yuan' commit suicide by jumping into a river. However, in the real case dumpling festival actually does exist even before this suicidal incident. It actually begins by people praying to the 'god of river' for peace and rich agricultural collection. They believed that water flooding the padi field is actually a sign of anger by 'god of river', hence they choose this day to pray the river god, so there will be no flood, and as a result they can get richer plantation collection!
'chu yuan' the famous chinese minister commit suicide by jumping into into a river on this day too. Many believed that he commit suicide because he was betray by the cunning minister. The people believed that 'chu yuan' was trapped by the water dragon, hence they wrap rice, meat, etc. with leaves and dumb them into the river, by hope that the water dragon will eat their offering item and release 'chu yuan.' Besides, they also try to find the body of 'chu yuan' by rowing boat across the river. Hence, today we eat rice dumpling and row dragon boat during this dumpling festival!
