平常佳节年年有，又到端午赛龙舟。很浓郁的中国味的节日，很地道的西方语言表达，The Dragon Boat Festival， people munch on zongzi, drink realgar wine, and race dragon boats! 对老外来说，过个吃粽子赛龙舟的中国节远比看中国书里读到的精彩！
Xiao Gao: Man! Duanwu Jie is really interesting!
Jingjing: So, tell me what you learned?
Xiao Gao: Well, the best known origin for the festival dates back to 278 BC, when a poet, named Qu Yuan, killed himself.
Jingjing: That's right. I bet ya don't know why we eat zongzi though!
Xiao Gao: I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but in fact, I do! Legend has it that after Qu Yuan died, some locals tossed lumps of rice into the water so the fish wouldn't eat his body.
Jingjing: Bingo, and some other local people were said to have traveled out on boat, either to scare away the fish or to retrieve his body. This is said to be the origin of dragon boat racing.
Xiao Gao: Hey, can I have another zongzi? I really love those things!
Jingjing: Sure, here you go.
(Xiao Gao eats the zongzi quickly, making many noises)
Xiao Gao: Oh, I'm so hungry. They taste extra delicious today!
Jingjing: Well, you know what they say: Hunger is a good sauce.
Xiao Gao: Yeah, in fact, can I have another one please? Do you have any that are sweetened?
Jingjing: I only have one sweet one left.
Xiao Gao: Oh, can I have it please?
Jingjing: No! Beggars can't be choosers! Here, take a regular flavored one.
Xiao Gao: Mmm. Thanks!
