See Color version:

Dragon boats holds a special place in my heart because I was born on the day of the festival, which occurs…

“…on the 5th day of the 5th month of the lunar calendar on which the Chinese calendar is based. This is the source of the alternative name of Double Fifth.3 In 2009 this falls on May 28 and in 2010 on June 16. The focus of the celebrations includes eating the rice dumpling zongzi, drinking realgar wine xionghuangjiu[clarification needed], and racing dragon boats.” read more on wikipedia
