1.关于端午节-感谢Cathy供稿!端午节,为每年农历五月初五。据《荆楚岁时记》记载,因仲夏登高,顺阳在上,五月是仲夏,它的第一个午日正是登高顺阳好天气之日,故五月初五亦称为“端阳节”。此外端午节还称“午日节、五月节、龙舟节、浴兰节、诗人节”等。端午节是流行于中国以及汉字文化圈诸国的传统文化节日。

端午节起源于中国,最初为古代百越地区(长江中下游及以南一带)崇拜龙图腾的部族举行图腾祭祀的节日,百越之地春秋之前有在农历五月初五以龙舟竞渡形式举行部落图腾祭祀的习俗。后因战国时期的楚国(今湖北)诗人屈原在该日抱石跳汨罗江自尽,统治者为树立忠君爱国标签将端午作为纪念屈原的节日;部分地区也有纪念伍子胥、曹娥等说法。

端午节与春节、清明节、中秋节并称为中国民间的四大传统节日。自古以来端午节便有划龙舟及食粽等节日活动。自2008年起,端午节被列为国家法定节假日。2006年5月,国务院将其列入首批国家级非物质文化遗产名录;2009年9月,联合国教科文组织正式审议并批准中国端午节列入世界非物质文化遗产,成为中国首个入选世界非遗的节日。

端午节吃粽子,这是中国人民的又一传统习俗。粽子,又叫做“角黍”、“筒粽”。其由来已久,花样繁多。端午节的早晨家家吃粽子纪念屈原,一般是前一天把粽子包好,在夜间煮熟,早晨食用。包粽子主要是用河塘边盛产的嫩草芦苇叶,某些地区也有用竹叶的,统称粽叶。粽子的传统形式为三角形,一般根据内瓤命名,包糯米的叫米粽,米中掺小豆的叫小豆粽,掺红枣的叫枣粽,统称糯米粽。枣粽谐音为“早中”,所以吃枣粽的最多,意在读书的孩子吃了可以早中状元。过去读书人参加科举考试的当天,早晨都要吃枣粽,至今中学、大学入学考试日的早晨,有的家长还要做枣粽给考生吃。

The Dragon Boat Festival
June 3rd, 2017

It all began from October of 2015, I came through the way with the Oakville Chinese Network. I’ve experienced and learned so many things with so many people. Including this time, the Dragon Boat Festival.
Knowing that the Dragon Boat Festival one of the most happy time period for people through the whole year, because people get to Zongzi and it is absolutely delicious. But only a few people know how to really make Zongzi, so the activity we are having this time is to teach people how to make Zongzi.
I was taking photos for people, so I was walking around the whole room. And I saw those seniors were teaching young people how to make Zongzi really patiently. No one complains about how bad the Zongzi look and it was such a waste of food. Although I did not get a chance to make Zongzi unfortunately, because I was busy working on my camera job, but it was so enjoyable to see how peaceful and friendly were the people.

3.诗歌散文:端午包粽喜洋洋 —-撰稿人:高玉柱(绿橡树长者)

五月时节好风光,山青水秀百花香。橡树村民大聚会,端午包粽喜洋洋。精选食材半加工,样样齐全摆桌上。高手彰显千秋技,新手专心细学仿。手法不同形各异,千姿百态美容装。露白那是开口笑,散叶更像舞美娘。翁婆少年心里美,欢声笑语满厅堂。牛吴二位好老师,为此奔波几日忙。无怨无悔人称颂,大爱无疆情义长。橡树村民多福乐,共度佳节美时光。感谢华联舞台美,阳光灿烂粽飘香。                                                                    

端午起源说法多,纪念屈原最广泛。战国时期秦破楚,楚臣屈原恨长天。五月初五投江死,汨罗江中尸不还。楚人悲痛江吊唁,划舟投粽愿尸全。端午包粽划龙舟,盛而不衰世代传。中华文化放异彩,传统风俗几千年。
