Chinese Ching Ming Festival is coming. To pray to the ancestors is one of the important events to keep the family luck say – the harmony of family members, the good relation of couples, birth of new born child. The family should do a simple but solemn ceremony to pray to the ancestors at least at the five big festivals Chinese New Year Eve, Ching Ming, Dragon Boat, Mid Autumn and Chung Yang Festival to have a blessing from the ancestors. Free instruction for the ceremony is welcome.
This is a nice poem by a poet in Sung Dynasty for Ching Ming Festival. After worshipping in the graveyard, it is advisable to go to “Yum Cha”( Afternoon Tea ) or have a shopping around in a busy shopping centre before going home for a rest.
