One of the most famous traditional Chinese foods is Triangle Rice. Have you ever heard of it? I know that in some western countries, you can easily find it in the supermarket freezers!(在一些西方国家，超市的冷柜里也随处可见粽子). Usually, we eat triangle rice to celebrate the DragonBoat Festival, the lunar calendar on the 5th of May. I guess I have to explain this festival to makesense of it. (我大概得先讲一下端午节的来历才能说粽子的含义). The Dragon Boat Festivalhonors a patriot poet ‘Qu Yuan’. About 2000 years ago, he did many good deeds for the people. Butthe emperor did not appreciate him,(当时的统治者排斥他) and exiled him instead.(他们把他流放出境) He drowned himself in the river at the end. To honor him, people went to the river each year to feed triangle rice to the fish, so they don’t bite Quyuan’s body. Gradually, this has become atradition. You may have guessed that triangle rice is made of rice. You can also add some peanutsand dates to it. In fact, some people even add ‘red beans’ as they contain the meaning of ‘missingeach other’ inChinese culture. Also, don’t forget to add sugar. Then the rice is wrapped in Zhuleaves in a triangle shape. Zhu is a plant that has wide leaves. Its leaves are neither thin or thick andthey smell pretty good after being boiled in water. Trust me, you will like it.
