Hong Kong Festivals

Chinese New Year: This year Chinese New Year falls on 18th February. It will be the Year of the Pig. It is the most significant festival for ethnic Chinese around the world. It is a very jubilant occasion mainly because it is the time when people take a break from work to get together with family and friends. The celebration officially lasts for three days. This is such a big festival that most shops and small restaurants will be closed on those 3 days and some up to 8 days.

Ching Ming Festival: Ching Ming Festival normally falls on the 4th or 5th of April every year. It is also called Tomb Sweeping Day in some places. On this day the whole family visits their ancestors or relatives' graves with incense sticks, joss sticks and paper offerings like paper money and paper clothes and any other paper accessories.

Mid-Autumn Festival/ Chinese National Day: It takes place on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Chinese people believe that on that day, the moon is the biggest, roundest and brightest. It is also known as the Moon Festival or the Lantern Festival, this is a time to bake moon cakes (sweet rolls with sesame seeds, duck's eggs, and lotus seeds), eat moon cakes, and give away moon cakes! Beside the moon cakes, people light lanterns created in the shape of fish, flowers, pretty much anything.
