Qīngmíngjié

A traditional festival for remembering the past ancestors. Usually occurs on early April. Every year our family comes to the grave of our ancestors and serve foods and fruits in front of their tomb. And then we scatter flower petals on the grave also burn 'heavenly' money and paper crates with things like clothes, cellphone, and gold coins in it. But of course they're paper made. Sometimes we also throw flower petals into the sea. It's an interesting festival because every member of the family would come. Although it's kinda sad actually.
