Speaker 1: I love boats and when I went on holiday to China I saw the most amazing festival. It was the Duanwu Festival, otherwise known as the Double Fifth because it is traditionally held on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. It is most well known, though, by the name of the Dragon Boat Festival. The dragon boats race each other and are decorated like dragons with colourful heads and tails. The tradition of dragon boat racing started about 2.000 years ago to honour Qu Yuan, who was a loyal supporter of China. Of course, nowadays, the sport is internationally recognised.
Speaker 2: I’m from India and each year in early March we celebrate Holi. On the first evening of the festival we light fires to keep away evil spirits. Everybody loves the second day because we throw coloured powder and water over everyone, this represents energy, joy and life. Everyone is covered with vivid orange, yellow, red, blue, green and purple. It’s best if you wear white clothes because the colours look great, you know, like a rainbow! It may sound messy but it’s a great way of bringing people together!
Speaker 3: I’m always anxious about being invited to one of these celebrations because I never know what to wear. It’s not only the happy couple who are under the spotlight. It’s everybody. Honestly, I’d be happy in casual clothes but it’s traditional to dress up. I’ve spent many evenings phoning my friends and discussing what colour to wear. White is forbidden, of course. That’s only for the bride. Most countries seem to have that rule, don’t they? Anyway, I’ll have to buy something soon, the ceremony is in two weeks!
Speaker 4: My friend lives in a large city on the coast. When I visited her last summer, they were holding a festival along the waterfront. The weather was glorious so we headed off to the port to see what was going on. There was a replica of a 15th century ship as well as the Tall Ships’ Race. There were other exciting things such as free sailing lessons and beach theatre, where they perform plays from all over the world. It lasted four days and it was wonderful.
Speaker 5: It’s great meeting friends and having a good time. One of my friends got married recently. After a month abroad on honeymoon, she and her husband are now back and settled into their new house. They have decided they want to arrange a small get-together for a few close friends to celebrate their first home. I don’t want to turn up empty-handed. I’ll probably bake a cake and buy some flowers to wish them good luck. Actually, I’m really looking forward to seeing my friends again and having a good time laughing and dancing.
