清明节 –中国的传统节日

While we remember today as Easter and the end of Passover, many Chinese Americans also remember today as “清明节”, also known as “Clear and Bright” on which, traditionally, families pay respect to their ancestors together, sweep the tombs and collectively remember the past and cherish the present.

As Ada Lee, one of the most respected community members and vice president of CABA, said, ” Today is an important day to remember and honor our ancestors and celebrate families”.

Irene Poon, a board member of CABA and an immigrant from Taiwan, recalled sweeping tombs of ancestors, remembers their contributions to families and communities. “It’s a time to carry on their valued traditions.” She said.

Pam Quan, secretary of CABA who grew up in China Town of San Francisco, savored the memory of a “wonderful time to be with families”. She said that even though we may be separated by distance or Covid, we can still connect with each other by phone, facetime and other means.

This is also a time for many families to enjoy their first outing of the new year, appreciating the awakening of plants, blooming flowers and many bird songs in the air.
