Paying respect

Ching Ming, Grave Sweeping Day, is a traditional Chinese celebration honoring ancestors. On this day, families visit the cemeteries of their ancestors to pay their respects with offerings of flowers, incense, imitation paper money, and food. This custom originated in ancient times and is still celebrated today.
