THIAN HUAT SIANG
Qingming Festival, also called Tomb Sweeping Day, is a traditional Chinese festival and an important day to commemorate their ancestors. It usually falls on April 4th or 5th. This festival has a history of over 2,500 years, starting in the Zhou Dynasty (1046 - 211 BC). It originated from the extravagant and ostentatiously expensive ceremonies that many ancient emperors and wealthy officials held in honor of their ancestors.
They provide offerings to their ancestors and beseeched them to bless the country with prosperity, peace and good harvest. Till today, Chinese still observe this traditional festival with great importance.
