Qing Ming Festival 2012

The Qing Ming Festival (清明节 Qing Ming Jie) or Tomb Sweeping Day is a Traditional Chinese Festival to remember the deceased and pay respect to the Ancestors.

It occurs on the 104th day after the Winter Solstice or the 15th day from the Spring Equinox. On the Gregorian Calendar, it is usually around 4th or 5th of April each year. It is also one of the 24 solar terms (二十四节气) in the year.

This Year, Qing Ming Festival falls on Wednesday, 4th April 2012, but Ancestral Tomb Visiting can be done before that.

In 2012, Vernal (Spring) Equinox occurs on 20th March 2012 (at precisely 1:14am EDT or 05:14 Universal Time, the Sun will cross over the Earth’s Equator directly, this moment is known as the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere), and people can start their Ancestral Tomb Visiting on this day.
