Spring is a wonderful time of the year to get outside and enjoy festivals and events with your loved one, and in China, there are several top events to enjoy with your Asian bride.
Qingming Festival (April 4th)
In China, Qingming Festival is probably the most significant event of the spring season outside of Chinese New Year, which is often referred to as Spring Festival. Qingming is said to have originated all the way back in 770BC and marks the start of the spring season which brings increased temperatures and rainfall to China.
Because of those environmental factors, the Qingming Festival is most closely attributed to agriculture and farming, however, it’s also a two-day holiday that gives you the perfect opportunity to celebrate with your Asian bride. Of all the activities and events that take place for Qingming, a spring outing is probably the most popular activity. It allows friends, family and loved ones to venture back outside after the winter season and enjoy the outdoors.
