April 5, 2017 all-day

On 5 April, the Confucian festival of Qing Ming was traditionally celebrated on the fourth or fifth day of the third month but is now on fixed dates (Apr 4 or 5) in China. It is observed by the maintenance of ancestral graves, the presentation of food, wine and flowers as offerings and the burning of paper money at gravesides to help ancestors in the after-world. People also picnic and gather for family meals.
