The Chung Yeung Festival or Festival of Ancestors is a day to respect and remember ancestors. and is always held on Ninth Moon, Day 9. Also known as Autumn Remembrance, this festival is similar to Ching Ming in the spring, in that families journey to the graves of their ancestors to perform cleansing rites and pay their respects. They share the food they bring along, especially Chinese cakes, ko, which is a homonym of the word for “top”. Some believe that those who eat these cakes will be promoted to the top.
