    Dragon boat Festival

    Dragon boat festival is a traditional Chinese festival. This festival commemorates an ancient Chinese official Qu Yuan who (no is) committed suicide because of the king’s mistrust of him.

    People who respected (no to) Qu Yuan didn’t want the fish to eat his corpse, so they threw some food into the river where he committed suicide. (Since you were trying to introduce the origin of the festival which all happened in the past, so you should use simple past tense for the whole introduction.) Nowadays, nobody throws food into the river anymore, but on the Memorial Day of Qu Yuan, people will make some special foods in order to commemorate him. Not only making food, people also organize (no a) Dragon Boat racing competition which uses (no some) boats which are designed like a dragon to race in the river. In the past, people believed those boats could threaten the fish away from Qu Yuan’s corpse. Although most of the original purposes for the Dragon Boat festival are now changed, they are entrenched in the Chinese tradition. Until today Dragon Boat Festival is still one of the big festivals in Chinese community.

    Note :

    - When we use 2 adjectives or more to describe a noun, we normally follow the following orders :

    1st – value / opinion. E.g. : traditional, beautiful

    2nd : fact. E.g. Chinese, European

    3rd – size. E.g. : large, small

    4th – age. E.g. : old, young, new

    5th – shape. E.g. : square, round

    6th – material. E.g. : wood, metal

    Last : the noun

    So for traditional Chinese festival :

    Traditional = opinion adjective

    Chinese = factual adjective

    Festival = noun
