Qingming Festival (also known as Pure Brightness Festival or Tomb-sweeping Day), which falls on either April 4th or 5th of the gregorian calendar, is one of the Chinese Twenty-four Solar Terms. From that date temperatures begin to rise and rainfall increases, indicating that it is the crucial time for plowing and sowing in the spring. The festival therefore has a close relationship with agriculture. However, it is not only a seasonal symbol; it is also a day of paying respect to the dead, a spring outing, and other activities.
Our factory will have two days break for the festival. Chinese government recommends that citizens choose family memory, online memorial service, or make appointments on behalf of the Qingming Festival this year to reduce the risk of epidemic transmission caused by travel and gathering of people.
We suggest our staffs staying home for most of the time too.
Have a nice holiday.
