Qingming Festival has been the most grand and grand ancestor worship festival in the Chinese nation since ancient times.Together with the Spring Festival, the Dragon Boat Festival and the Mid-Autumn Festival, it is known as the four traditional festivals in China.

Therefore, sweeping tombs and ancestors outing are the two major ritual themes of Qingming Festival. The traditional concept of “harmony between man and nature” has been vividly reflected.
After historical development, the Qingming Festival has integrated the customs of the Cold Food Festival and the Shangsi Festival, and has mixed a variety of folk customs in many places. Traditional activities such as swinging, cockfighting, willow shooting, cuju and silkworm flower fairs have extremely rich cultural connotations.
