Last Qingming Festival,i return home to worship my grandfather.Qingming Festival is a folk Festival.In the past,In the past, the Qingming Festival was called "Arbor Day". But Today, Chinese visit their family graves to tend to any underbrush that has grown. Weeds are pulled, and dirt swept away, and the family will set out offerings of food and spirit money. Unlike the sacrifices at a family's home altar, the offerings at the tomb usually consist of dry, bland food. One theory is that since any number of ghosts rome around a grave area, the less appealing food will be consumed by the ancestors, and not be plundered by strangers.
With the passing of time, this celebration of life became a day to the honor past ancestors. Following folk religion, the Chinese believed that the spirits of deceased ancestors looked after the family. Sacrifices of food and spirit money could keep them happy, and the family would prosper through good harvests and more children.
"Qingming Festival have rain, pedestrians on the road, borrows asked wineshop where has, the shepherd boy points at Xinghuacun." Whenever I think of this poem in Tang Dynasty poet Du Mu's thought of as the Qingming Festival is coming, the tomb of the steps is not far away......
Probably around 8, I and mother grandfather from home leave. On the road, I continue to think back to the previous things, it seems that I have never seen her gentle appearance, also do not have any with Grandma about the deeds of the mind. What does she look like? To me...... A series of questions rushed to my brain. I asked my mother: "mother, I have seen grandma? For me?" the mother said reluctantly: "to tell the truth, she to you very well, you made a mistake, she always protect you......"
After several minutes of the car bumps along the way, we finally arrived at Grandma's grave. We cleared of weeds grave, dredging drainage ditch on the side, placed offerings, incense, candles point, folding the paper money burned to ashes to the family worship, as a means of sustenance for a miss their loved ones died. We finished the Chinese etiquette, uncle took the firecrackers "crack" sound, that sound deafen the ear with its roar like thunder. I silently in front of the tomb wishing "hope grandma bless me reading smart, study progress, family life happy, healthy body".
