Zongzi is an essential food of the Dragon Boat Festival.
It is said that people ate them in the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC). In early times it was only glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in reed or other plant leaves and tied with colored thread but now the fillings are more diversified including jujube and bean paste fresh meat and ham and egg yolk. If time permits people will soak glutinous rice wash reed leaves and wrap up zongzi themselves. Otherwise they will go to shops to buy whatever stuff they want. The custom of eating zongzi is now popular in North and South Korea Japan and Southeast Asian nations.
On Dragon Boat Festival parents also need to dress their children up with a perfume pouch. They first sew little bags with colorful silk cloth then fill the bags with perfumes or herbal medicines and finally string them with silk threads. The perfume pouch will be hung around the neck or tied to the front of a garment as an ornament. They are said to be able to ward off evil.
The Dragon Boat Festival also called the Duanwu Festival is celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month according to the Chinese calendar. For thousands of years the festival has been marked by eating zong zi (glutinous rice(糯米)wrapped to form a pyramid using bamboo or reed leaves) and racing dragon boats.
