Chung Yeung Festival, also known as Autumn Remembrance, takes place on the ninth day of the ninth month of the Chinese lunar calendar. The festival is a day to respect and remember ancestors, a practice widely valued by the Chinese.

The practice of ancestor worship is based on three beliefs:

  • That a person’s good or bad fortune is influenced by the souls of his or her ancestors
  • That all departed ancestors have the same material needs they had when alive
  • That the departed can assist their living relatives
