    Quing Ming Festival Xi'an China

    During Quing Ming, usually in early April, paper offerings of money, clothing, houses and other items are burned as offerings to the ancestors. Traditionally, these offerings would be done at the gravesites of the ancestors but, with China's population becoming more mobile, the offerings will now often be burned at road or street intersections.
