Qing Ming 清明

For further information, email us

Qing Ming is an important day for many Asian cultures and takes place on 5 April. During Qing Ming, families visit their loved ones’ resting places to pray and make ritual offerings. Offerings typically include traditional food and the burning of joss sticks and joss paper. The occasion is about traditionally honouring and showing respect for loved ones.

4月5日清明节是许多亚洲文化的重要传统纪念缅怀的节日。清明节期间,人们会前往已逝亲人的安息地扫墓祭奠。人们会在墓碑前供奉传统食物等祭物,烧纸钱香烛祈福。清明节是后人慎终追远,缅怀先人的传统文化体现。

Each year, Springvale Botanical Cemetery holds a variety of remembrance services to promote inclusiveness in the wider Victorian community. Qing Ming is a community experience for all to attend and be involved in.

清明节是社区文化的重要内容,每年Springvale长青墓园都会举行各种纪念仪式,促进维多利亚州社区文化的多元融合。
