One possible version:

Dear Amy,

I learn from your letter that you want to know something about Chinese traditional festival – The Dragon Boat Festival. I’m happy to share what I know about it with you.

The festival has a history of more than 2,000 years. It falls on the fifth day of the fifth month according to the Chinese lunar calendar. On that day, people watch exciting dragon-boat races and make delicious zongzi, a kind of special food with sticky rice, meat etc. wrapped in bamboo leaves. These two are both done in memory of Qu Yuan, a great poet in history.

In a word, we all love the festival because it ’s a good reminder to look back on history and a wonderful time to get together with family. I hope that you can come to celebrate it with us in the near future.

Best wishes,

Si Xiang
