Look how they treat the world, their right and everybody is wrong

Just visit any old grave. None of those dead people know who you are anyway.

Are you saying your ancestors have dissowned you?

Actually paying professionals to mourn for a dearly departed family member is quite common all o ...

Having been tomb visiting at Qing Ming in the past I see that most people treat it as a fun time and enjoy a picnic there.

The idea of proffessional mourners came about to convince others that the deceased was a popular person when infact they may not have been.

Ghosts are big business in the UK with haunted places attracting many tourists.

Maybe many Chinese are scared to interact on CD due to the number of ghosts present

I think it shows a total lack of respect..... you would wonder if they show the dead this kind of respect ... what did they really think of them when they were living.... why even bother.. just save the cash...

Should you not respect your ancestors everyday and not only one day a year?

what good does it do when they're already under 6 ft deep...only make some sense if they're still alive...i prefer cremate when my appointment is up & dont have to bother anybody later on (should i care when i'm gone)  
a man who uses his hands is a laborer. one who uses his hands and his mind is a craftsman. but he who uses his hands, his mind, and his heart, is an artist...
