12. HK Fun Fact #12

12. On Thursday, we have a statutory holiday to celebrate the Ching Ming Festival. Literally translated Ching Ming means “clean and bright.” This day marks a chance for the Chinese to honor their ancestors by visiting their graves, bringing flowers, cleaning the gravesite and offering traditional burnt offerings. Additionally, people will remember those who died during sensitive political events in Mainland China such as Tiananmen Square in 1989.
