Last week, I had gone home, and as the dragon boat festival is approaching, my Mather has bought some reed leaves, glutinous rice, pork and peanut. We had made some rice dumplings, in our brother’s opinions, these were very delicious. So he had eaten many rice dumplings. I do not like eat rice dumplings, but I like do this. Because I think this is interesting things, and make rice dumplings is our traditions in dragon boat festival.

In our hometown, there is a custom, which is if their family (such as Grandfather, Grandmother and others) had died in this year, they could not make rice dumplings for approaching three years. This is our hometown’s custom.
