Forest Hills Cemetery welcomes families remembering loved ones during Ching Ming.
Celebrated in March and April.
The date is indicated on the Chinese calendar with two characters: ching, meaning pure or clean, and ming, meaning brightness. Combined together, Ching Ming means clean and just. This date is also indicated on traditional Japanese calendars, where their culture has a similar observance. In Korean culture, the observance is known as Hansik.
Please note that when observing at Forest Hills, all offerings will be removed daily.
