The fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar is the Dragon Boat Festival. The Dragon Boat Festival is one of the traditional festivals in my country. It has a history of more than two thousand years. The earliest Dragon Boat Festival in our country is to commemorate the poet Qu Yuan. Legend has it that after Qu Yuan's death in the river, the people of Chu State were so sad that they flocked to the Miluo River to pay tribute to Qu Yuan. The fishermen rowed boats to salvage his real body back and forth on the river. A fisherman took out the rice balls, eggs and other food prepared for Qu Yuan and threw them into the river 'plop and plopPeople followed suit after seeing it. An old doctor brought a jar of realgar wine and poured it into the river, saying that he wanted the medicine to stun the dragon water beast, so as not to hurt Dr. Qu. Later, for fear that the rice ball would be eaten by the dragon, people came up with the idea of u200bu200bwrapping rice with neem leaves and wrapping colored silk on the outside to develop into zongzi. Now the Dragon Boat Festival has become a legal holiday in our country, and it has also declared the national intangible heritage. The Dragon Boat Festival in my hometown is always in the wheat harvest season. On this day, tired people will get up early, cut the wormwood by the ditch, and pull out the LA-LA spike (a plant that grows by the water). The top will be covered with seeds, and the round fruit grows like a strawberry seed on the outside of the body. I can’t talk about its scientific name and can only be written with the voice of the hometown.) It is said that this plant can treat eye diseases in the Dragon Boat Festival. On this day, it is best to pull it out and place it on the windowsill to dry. Wormwood is also a kind of traditional Chinese medicine. People in my hometown always take wormwood decoction to treat coughs. On the Dragon Boat Festival, people put wormwood on the door to ward off evil spirits. Some people twist the wormwood into straw ropes and dry it to repel mosquitoes. When looking at the crops in the field, I ordered a wormwood rope, and the mosquitoes would not bite overnight, and I would sleep peacefully. The children are very excited during the Dragon Boat Festival. On this day, mothers will sew all kinds of sachets, mostly heart-shaped. The five-color thread is tied around the neck. The fragrance in the sachet is overflowing, and this fragrance has the effect of warding off evil spirits and repelling insects. No matter how many children there are, they can run to each other to see whose fragrance bag is the best, whose fragrance is the most fragrant, and compare whose mother's hands are the most skillful. The children were happily happily, with colored threads tied around their necks, hands, and ankles, to see who had the brightest and richest colors.
