The Qingming Festival (Qing ming jie in Mandarin), also referred to as Tomb Sweeping Day, is an important holiday with its roots in China. This festival marks the onset of the spring season and is dedicated to paying respects to ancestors by cleaning their final resting places.

The name "Qing ming jie" literally translates to "pure bright festival" and is celebrated 15 days after the Spring Equinox, which signifies the beginning of longer daylight hours over nighttime hours. This holiday is a symbolic representation of fresh starts and new beginnings that spring brings.

In the year 2023, the Qingming Festival falls on April 5th, which is observed as a public holiday in China.
