Tomb Sweeping Day
Today is Pure Bright Festival ,the fifth term of our twenty-four Solar terms ,also known as Tomb Sweeping Day when working people statutorily take a day off .In the past , this day people paid a visit to a tomb setting off fireworks , burning a sort of rough straw paper in which it was believed that the paper would turn into coffers for ghosts in the nether world to spend. Of course it is a superstition . Now we do environment friendly tomb sweeping .Neither burning paper nor setting off fireworks ,just lay fresh flowers before the tombs. I totally approve of this way to do tomb sweeping .I think It is the remembrance that counts.
