春運

Welcome to the Year of the Ox

Per the fifteen day celebration custom, the third and fourth days are not good days to visit family, unless they are dead. That is right this is graveyard visiting time in China. They also take this time to clean up the grave sites, removing brush and cleaning the tombstones.

You know, lately this is a good general rule for me, usually safer to visit my graveyard dwelling family members than the livings ones. :) Lot less name calling and back biting :)
