3 Brief Introduction Qing Ming is a time to remember the dead and the dearly departed. More important, it is a period to honour and to pay respect to one's deceased ancestors and family members. Qingming Festival, also known as Pure Brightness Festival or Tomb-sweeping Day, is one of the 24 segments of the Chinese calendar.

4 Origin The Tomb-Sweeping Day originated from Hanshi Day ( 寒食节 ), a memorial day for Jie Zitui ( 介子推 ),who died in 636 BC in the Spring and Autumn Period. It is said that Jie saved the starving Duke Wen of Jin( 晋文公 )’s life by serving a piece of his own leg. However, When the Wen succeeded in becoming the ruler, Jie declined his invitation, preferring to lead a hermit's life with his mother in the mountains.
