When it comes to Tomb-Sweeping Day, we inevitably take a serious and cautious attitude towards this day. Everyday will go to their ancestor’s tomb to clean it up. Otherwise, each family has to prepare some fruits and delicious meals for worshipping their ancestors in their home. All we do on this day represents that we show our respect to those who have died. Like most people, my family and I are busy on this day. We have to go to traditional markets to buy some food which is used to worship our ancestors. In addition, we must get up early to go to the tomb and clean weeds near it. It is indeed a tiring job. For me, getting up early is the most awful thing on this day in particular. However, I still try my best to help my parents on tomb-sweeping day every year. After all, it is the special day that provides a rare chance to “tell” our ancestors how we miss him.
