Chung Yeung

Chung Yeung (9th moon, 9th day), like the Ching Ming, is a day to pay respects to and remember the departed loved ones. It is also known as Autumn Remembrance. People move to the hills and make offerings. It is based on a folktale of how Woon King on the advice of a soothsayer took his whole family to the higher regions on this 9th day and on his return saw that the whole village had been slaughtered.  It is an occasion to share food and go for hiking trips and picnics.
