All Souls Day is celebrated by the Chinese people all over the world, including those in Choa Chu Kang. Cheng Beng, also known as the Festival of the Tombs, is held annually on April 5th for All Souls Day. The normally peaceful and tranquil cemetery awakens with life. Family members of loved ones past come out in-droves to remember those now departed. They leave food and paper money on the tombstones as offerings. However, before the offerings are presented there is a tradition of prayer and candle lighting. The festival starts bright and early and goes all day long. Take a camera and be sure to photograph all the elaborate customs and traditions.
