Come learn more about the Qing Ming Festival, or ‘Tomb Sweeping Day’, that will be observed in April this year by families across Singapore! In this talk, President of the Kuala Lumpur & Selangor Peranakan Baba Nyonya Association, Cedric Tan, will discuss the contemporary rites of ancestral worship practised by Peranakan families during this festival, which originate from ancient Chinese rituals dating to before 100 B.C., touching upon the enduring themes of family unity and honouring of the deceased.
