ATA Dragon Boat Festival 端午節 5/31/14

Dear ATA Members,
You are invited to join us for our Dragon Boat Festival for 2014! In the olden days in Taiwan, there were no weather forecasts. People relied on the coming of this holiday to signal the ending of winter so that they could start packing away their winter coats. The cooking of bahzhang rice dumplings signaled the start of the summer for people. It is a holiday of camaraderie, with friends and family getting together. Let’s continue on the tradition together!

各位同鄉 : 
我們台灣人的祖公祖嬤傳給我們說: 『五日節粽沒吃, 破襖不可放』。意味著端午節之前的氣候還是忽冷忽熱不甚穩定, 需要等到五日節的『燒肉粽』吃完, 才能將冬衣收起。我們台灣人的祖先是多麼地有智慧呀! 希望藉著這個節日能將我們的文化、風俗、飲食、習慣、、、等等, 一一的傳承下去留給我們的子子孫孫。同鄉們啊! 2014年的五日節香噴噴的肉粽在等著你呢! 別忘了『相接你親戚朋友, 厝裡大小, 逗陣來呷燒肉粽』!!!
