yes, it is interesting that watch the dragon boat competition, in this day, there have a tranditional customs in many place, people in the door put a Chinese mugwort in some places, it is said that can to ward off evil spirits from ancestors, what is more, people eat “zongzi” which is a very delicious tranditional food in China, and what make me excited is that we can have three days off and go home, stay with my loved family...
