Qing Ming 2018
Qing Ming falls on 5 April 2018 this year. In Chinese tradition, the Chinese will go to clean the tombs and pay respects in the period 10 days before and 10 days after 5 April 2018.
It is one of the seasons when Chinese remember their ancestors. For Qing Ming, until recently, many would visit the tombs of their ancestors to clean up the tomb, make offerings, and often, the extended families meet to have a meal by the tomb.
These days, with more cremations, Qing Ming also takes another form as descendants go to the Columbarium (government run and some places of worship) to pay their respects.
