Tomb Sweeping Day

Tomb-Sweeping Day is an ancient festival of the Chinese nation. It is not only a solemn festival for tomb sweeping and ancestor worship, but also a happy festival for people to get close to nature, go outing and enjoy the fun of spring. Douzhi B (or taiyanghuang meridian up to 15 °) is the Qingming solar term, and the festival time is before and after April 5 of the Gregorian calendar. In this season, the vitality is exuberant, the Yin Qi is declining, and all things "spit out the old and accept the new". The Earth presents the image of spring and scenery. It is a good time for youth tours and tomb sacrifices in the suburbs. The Qingming ancestor worship Festival lasts for a long time. There are two versions: 10 days before, 8 days after and 10 days before and 10 days after. These nearly 20 days belong to the Qingming ancestor worship Festival.
