Today is the traditional Chinese festival called Duanwu Jie (端午节)。
This festival is one of the most important traditional Chinese festivals which is celebrated across China to memorialise the Chinese poet Quyuan who died 2200 years ago. In the Chinese calendar, today is the fifth day of May.

To answer you question, who didn't in my class?! One of my classmates almost got expelled as he tried to grasp her hand. He's so brave but our math teacher is hot too so boys might be divided up though.
