dragon boat festival '05 edition

podcast-lg4

today's topics:

1. what is 端午節 or in English, the Dragon Boat Festival?
2. how is this holiday celebrated? (aside from dragon boat racing as you can glean from the name.)
3. what are the origins of this holiday? there's the well-known version of the origin of this festival, and then there are some other not so well-known ones.

Sept. 17, 2007 update:

my free podcast host Rizzn.net has ceased to exist since 2005, and I lost the

original files, so the audio podcast file in this post is forever gone, i guess.
