波羅說故事 Story

Dragon Boat Festival Origins: Who is Qu Yuan?
The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Double Fifth Festival, is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. The origin of the important festival was from an intelligent official named “Qu Yuan”. Qu Yuan was a respected man who was good at diplomacy. He was appointed left minister to King Huai because of his outstanding talents. Qu Yuan loved his kingdom very much, but he could not gain respect of the new emperor after King Huai passed away. The new king appointed his brother to be prime minister. It is a pity that the prime minister hated Qu Yuan and exiled him to Jiangnan. During that tough time, Qu Yuan wrote a lot of poems to express his emotions. However, he still could not stand the emotional despair and decided to end it all. Qu Yuan jumped into Miluo River and committed suicide. When people heard the bad news, they immediately tried to find his body. In addition, people threw rice into the river to prevent fish from eating Qu Yuan and try to appease the river dragon. This is the legend of Dragon Boat Festival. Every year during the Dragon Boat Festival, Boro likes to watch the dragon boat races and stand the egg on its end. Bomei likes to make her own fragrant sachets. As for their cousin, Boyo, likes to hang moxa on the doors to keep the bad spirit away. They all love to eat rice dumplings to celebrate the festival.
端午節,又稱五五節,是在農曆五月初五慶祝。這個重要的節日是起源於一位名叫“屈原”的聰明官員。屈原是個受人尊敬的男人,他善於外交。因為才華出眾,而被任命為楚懷王的左丞相。屈原非常愛他的國家,但在楚懷王去世後,他無法獲得新皇帝的尊重。新皇帝任命他的弟弟為宰相。可惜宰相討厭屈原,將他流放江南。在那段艱難的時期,屈原寫了很多詩來抒發情感。然而,他還是無法忍受情緒上的絕望,決定結束這一切。屈原跳入汨羅江自盡。當人們聽到這個壞消息時,他們立即嘗試找到他的屍體。此外,人們還把米飯丟進河裡,以防止魚吃屈原的身體,並試圖安撫汨羅江的龍。這就是端午節的傳說。每年端午節的時候,波羅都喜歡看龍舟比賽,還喜歡立蛋。波美則喜歡自己做香包。至於他們的堂姊,波悠,喜歡把艾草掛在門上,用來趕走壞東西。他們都喜歡吃粽子來慶祝端午節。
