Translation:What date is the Dragon Boat Festival this year?

Personally I would prefer to use a romanisation of the Chinese name (Duanwu Festival) rather than Dragon Boat Festival, although it is perhaps the most visible part of the festival it is not what the festival is about, reinforces ignoarance and is rather patronisng. Okay even most Westerners call Shrove Tuesday "Pancake Day", but it is the same as naming Western holidays only by outward appearances, e.g. "Dress up in whIte robes and mask week", "Chocalate Egg Festival" "Turkey eating holoday".
