Later for fear of that the rice rolls will be eaten by flood dragon, people came up with the idea that they used the neem leaves to wrap rice, and tied in colored silk which developed into zongzi. Later, in the annual May fifth, there are dragon boat RACES, eating zongzi, drink realgar wine customs, to commemorate the patriotic poet Qu yuan
