Qing Ming Festival


Living in a Chinese Community, we often experience many colorful and eventful festivals. One particular festival that is held during the last two weeks of the vernal equinox is the Qing Ming Festival or Tomb Sweeping Day. As the name connotes, it is a day in where we honor our dearly departed and ancestors by visiting, paying respect and cleaning their graves. We sometimes offer food and burn money so our ancestors may be able to use these in the afterlife.

This is a great way to learn the traditions while practicing Chinese! 


But this festival doesn’t only honor our dead, it also celebrates life. Many Chinese mark this day by planning fun outdoor activities like flying kites of all shapes and sizes.
