Happy Duanwu Festival by kelly1412 Happy Duanwu Festival by kelly1412
Today is Chinese Duanwu Festival! (also known as Dragon Boat Festival). and the Dragon dance is originally made for celebrate this festival!~

I find that this festival really fits the feeling of Earth Kingdom.
So I tried to drew it... butt it looks more like an advertisement (?)
hope you enjoy it ...^_^b

I am here recommending you the typical food: zongzi , the green thing Toph and Zuko are holding. It is made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves. So yummy!
you could find them these days in most Asia supermarket, if you want to have a try~just
it have salt and sweet two kind of taste, salt Zongzi usually contain meet, sweet one probably has red been inside, more like a dessert.

holy crap, i should REALLY check up on my heritage more. they always show up in the local "new city asian supermarket" around this time of year, but I didn't realize there was a freakin festival about it. o_0

......

my faves got to be the red bean with sugar and honey. P: just had one for dinner. (too lazy to cook 2day. :/ )

This is the same thing what I thought.... I was eating zongzi for lunch, and I came up with a question >>>>> Do people in Earth Kingdom eat zongzi?? Then I saw this, it's amazing :D

We had zongzi in school last friday, cause it's a Buddhist school so they were all made vegetable and I don't like the taste :(
