Hong Kongers celebrate an old age practice of worshiping their ancestors by visiting ancestral grave-sites which is called Chung Yeung Festival. That’s why October 14 is a public holiday for them. In photo is the Sai Wan War Cemetery. It is similar to the celebration of Christian – All Soul’s Day on November 1 to remember those departed loved ones by bringing flowers and lighting candles to the grave.

The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
