March 2019

Ching Ming Festival

The Ching Ming Festival is a day when the Chinese all over the world celebrate life and commemorate the dead.  This special Chinese day for the remembrance of our ancestors officially occurs on Fri April 5, 2019 and it is commonly celebrated by families at a cemetery or with a simple day of respect.   

This festival is very ancient and can be dated back in Chinese history around 2,500 years. The traditional practice involves visiting the grave of an ancestor in order to tidy the headstones, clean away grass and weeds, light incense, make burnt offerings(often of fake money) and sharing of food.   There are many variations of this practice and we want to know how you and your family celebrate Ching Ming.   Please send us an email and tell us how you celebrate this festival and we will post it to our website at www.wongs.org (with your permission) and we will get to see the many ways Ching Ming is celebrated.  In fact,  our website has a neat Ching Ming narration from Ryan Wong in Toronto which was sent to us last year.  All email submissions will qualify as a participation credit for the annual Wongs Scholarship and Wongs Book Grant Award.     

The Wongs Association will celebrate Ching Ming Festival on Sun March 31, 2019 at the Wongs Association HQ (303 Spadina Ave. Toronto, M5T 2E6) from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.   Our annual celebration includes a traditional ceremony and lunch.   Attendance at our event also qualifies as a participation credit for the annual Wongs Scholarship and Wongs Book Grant Award.  Plus, the WYO will have a draw for a pair of Cineplex admission passes for all youth in attendance.  We will be happy to give you a tour of our family association headquarters and to share the knowledge of our history.   Say hi to the WYO team and they will share some Ching Ming facts with you including the Legend of the Headless Chicken.  Come join us and take part in a time honored tradition with us.
