  • In China, there are 8 major festivals, including Spring Festival, Lantern Festival,

  • Dragon Boat Festival, Chinese Valentine's Day, Ghost Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival,

  • Double Ninth Festival and Pure Brightness Festival, also called 清明 or清明(节) [ qīngng

  • jié ] by Chinese people. [qīngng ] is a 3 day public holiday in China. Depending

  • on the Chinese Lunar calendar, [ Qīngng ] usually is on the 4th or 5th day of April.

  • Every year on that day, millions of Chinese people would make a trip to a cemetery 墓园

  • [ mù yuán ], sweeping the tombs 扫墓 [ sǎo mù ] and giving offerings to the dead.

  • Now you know that [ Qīngng ] is not a celebration but a day to remember and pay respect to the

  • dead, giving appreciation to the family members who have passed away.

  • You may wonder what Chinese people do to pay respect to the dead. But before we go further,

  • you should first understand why treating the dead with respect is so important in the Chinese culture.

  • This is all about 孝[ xiào ]. What is孝 [ xiào ] ? To make it easier for you

  • to understand, 孝 [ xiào ] is a type of love with responsibilities. In western culture,

  • people often say "I love you" to their parents and give them a kiss. Well... this

  • is not the case in Chinese culture. Our way to show love is different. I love my parents

  • so much but I never say "I love you" to them or even to my two grandparents who have

  • passed away. But I show my love through actions. Chinese people are taught to remember how

  • much their parents have helped them and the sacrifices they have made to raise them and

  • guide them. And guess what? We will never be able to pay them back. What we can do

  • is to take care of them when they get old and give them as much as we can afford. And

  • even when parents pass away, children are responsible for getting the dead a nice place

  • to have peace forever and then continue to supply them what they may need This is called

  • [ xiào ], which is a tradition value children hold to their parents.

  • On清明(节) [ Qīngng jié ] millions of loving children fight traffic on their

  • way to cemeteries, performing a series of ceremonies for the dead. Families and relatives

  • will join together at a cemetery and they carry lots of items for the activity such

  • as cooked food, flowers, incense and paper money ready to burn for the dead. Burning

  • incense and paper items are a traditional culture in China. Paper items can be basically

  • anything as long as it is in a paper form. Now family members can sweep the tombs, holding

  • burning incense and talk to the dead as long as they want. Does it sound like a lot of

  • work? Hmm..remember, to be a 孝顺的孩子 [ xiào shùn de hái zi] "a loving child"

  • is all that matters. Chinese culture is very important to me and

  • my family, so I value the opportunity to share it with you. Thanks for watching!
