The Qingming festival, also known as Tomb-Sweeping （扫墓sǎo mù）Day in English , is a traditional Chinese festival observed by the people in China and east & southeast Asian Countries. It falls on the first day of the fifth solar term of the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar （阴历yīn lì ）. This makes it the 15th day after the Spring Equinox（春分chūn fèn ）, either 4, 5 or 6 April in a given year. During Qingming, Chinese families visit the tombs（坟墓fén mù ） of their ancestors to clean the gravesites, pray to their ancestors and make ritual offerings. Offerings would typically include traditional food dishes （祭品jì pǐn）and the burning of joss sticks（蜡烛là zhú ） and joss paper（冥钱 míng qián）. The holiday recognizes the traditional reverence of one's ancestors in Chinese culture. The Qingming Festival has been observed by the Chinese for over 2500 years, although the observance has changed significantly. It became a public holiday（公共假日 gōng gòng jiǎ rì ）in mainland China in 2008.
