Irish Born Chinese

Ching Ming

Thursday, 12th March 2015, 01:41 by whykay_g | Comments
It's the time to do a bit of spring cleaning of your loved ones graves which is know as Ching Ming (in Cantonese), here it is in Traditional written form, 清明. It's a way to honouring our loved ones and celebrate as a family.

I, myself, will be heading down to do a bit of tidying up of my father's grave.

I wonder if Chinese in Ireland follow this tradition?
