Families the Focus during Qingming
Many Malaysian Chinese families of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints observe the Chinese tradition Qingming. Qingming festival is similar to the Christian's "All Soul's Day.” In general, it is a day commemorating the departed, but not exclusively one's relatives. The prayers appointed to that day are a reminder that their Christian ancestors who have finished their earthly life may have hope of resurrection from the dead. They also see this festival as a time of reflection and to honor and give thanks to their forefathers.
