  篇一:家乡的端午节
  At the end of the Zhou Dynasty, the area we now know as China had fallen into a state of fragmentation and conflict. While the Zhou dynasty had ruled for several centuries, several other states, originally feudal domains, tried to carve out their own kingdoms. The state of Qin would eventually emerge the victor and unify all of China under one rule for the first time in history.
  Qu Yuan served as minister to the Zhou Emperor. A wise and articulate man, he was loved by the common people. He did much to fight against the rampant corruption that plagued the court-- thereby earning the envy and fear of other officials. Therefore, when he urged the emperor to avoid conflict with the Qin Kingdom, the officials pressured the Emperor to have him removed from service. In exile, he traveled, taught and wrote for several years. Hearing that the Zhou had been defeated by the Qin, he fell into despair and threw himself into the Milou River. His last poem reads:
  Many a heavy sigh I have in my despair,Grieving that I was born in such an unlucky time.I yoked a team of jade dragons to a phoenix chariot,And waited for the wind to come,to sour up on my journey
  As he was so loved by the people, fishermen rushed out in long boats, beating drums to scare the fish away, and throwing zong zi into the water to feed braver fish so that they would not eat Qu Yuan's body.
The Modern Dragon Boat Festival started from that time to this day, people commemorated Qu Yuan through Dragon Boat Races, eating zong zi, and several other activities, on the anniversary of his death: the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
  Dragon Boat races are the most exciting part of the festival, drawing crowds of spectators. Dragon Boats are generally brightly painted and decorated canoes. Ranging anywhere from 40 to 100 feet in length, their heads are shaped like open-mouthed dragons, while the sterns end with a scaly tail. Depending on the length, up to 80 rowers can power the boat. A drummer and flag-catcher stand at the front of the boat. Before a dragon boat enters competition, it must be "brought to life" by painting the eyes in a sacred ceremony. Races can have any number of boats competing, with the winner being the first team to grab a flag at the end of the course. Annual races take place all over China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and other overseas Chinese communities.
  
  篇二:家乡的端午节
  又到了飘满棕子香味的端午节了,让我想起了我们家乡端午节的习俗。(Www.T262.Com-中国作文网)
  我五岁那年,在湖南老家过了一个端午节。那天上午,爸爸领着我去看划龙舟比赛。还没有到江边,远远地就听到了锣鼓喧天,非常热闹。走近一看,江边插着许多彩旗,岸上人山人海,五条龙舟在江里一字排开,划船手摩拳擦掌在准备着。正式比赛开始了,只听一声炮响,五条龙舟像五支离弦的箭一样向前驶去,你追我赶,争先恐后。加油声、锣鼓声、欢呼声……异常热闹。
  这时天空下起了绵绵细雨,但是人们一点也不在乎,完全沉浸在这欢乐的海洋里。在人们的欢呼声中,有一条龙舟划到了终点,笑声、欢呼声更响亮了。
  我看见岸上看热闹的人往江里扔粽子和鸡蛋,我非常奇怪地问:“爸爸,他们在做什么,为什么要把好端端的粽子扔进水里呢?”爸爸说:“赛龙舟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,追到洞庭湖时不见踪迹。以后每年五月五日划龙舟纪念他。借划龙舟赶走江中之鱼,同时丢粽子等食物喂给鱼吃,以免鱼吃掉屈原的身体。”
  我爱家乡的端午节。我们家乡的爱国诗人屈原值得我们永远怀念。
  
  篇三:家乡的端午节
  端午节是我国的传统节日,进入农历五月,家乡便拉开了端午节的序幕。五月初五的早上,家家户户都开始忙碌起来,除了做各式各样的香包之外,还包品种繁多的粽子。
  妈妈最会包粽子了。包的粽子有咸有甜,有荤有素,还有桂圆馅儿的、五香味儿的,等等。我对肉粽子不感兴趣,却对素粽子情有独钟,里面不仅有大大的枣子,还有花生和芝麻。妈妈包的粽子总是大大的,糯米的浓香里裹着甜甜的枣子,那真叫一吃一个爽!咬一口,含在嘴里慢慢地嚼一嚼,真是越嚼越香!
  说起端午节,不得不说屈原。汨罗江边,屈原大夫的内心充满无奈。楚怀王昏庸无能,屈原眼睁睁看着国土被侵略,大好河山毁于一旦,他感到昔日的楚国不复存在,于是绝望地在汨罗江边轻轻一跃,就此殉国。人们为了纪念屈原,荡舟江河上,此后逐渐发展成为龙舟竞赛。百姓们担心鱼虾会吃掉屈原的身体,纷纷将米团投入水中,后来就演变成了吃粽子的习俗。
  家乡的端午节还有许多有趣的活动,如赛龙舟、饮雄黄酒、吃煮鸡蛋和在家门前插菖蒲等,真是不胜枚举,乐趣无穷。
  年年都有端午节,我对端午节的感受也随着年龄的增长,每年都不同。
