Chinese Ching Ming Festival

Didn't do much crafting except for a bracelet which I posted earlier. The hot weather over here in Seremban didn't help either. The air-condition unit was switched on full blast as well which didn't help my headache which was pounding rather badly in my head.

Yesterday was Saturday and our whole family went to visit the grave of my late father in-law in Sendayan to celebrate the Chinese Ching Ming Festival. As it was still very early, there was not many people unlike last year when the whole place was like so crowded with cars and visitors.

Chinese Ching Ming is one of the 24 segments in chinese calendar and is celebrated in late March or April each year (105 days after the previous year's Winter Solstice). Ching Ming is also known as "Remembrance of Ancestor's Day".

On this particular day, the whole family will visit the ancestors' or relatives' graves. We have to carry food, fruits, incense sticks, joss sticks and paper offerings like money paper, paper clothes, paper gold ingots, etc. All of the offerings would be burnt for they believe that the departed can receive the goods and "money" this way.
