A little girl walks on tombs during Tomb Sweeping day, or 'Qingming', in a cemetery near Nianjing, Jiangsu province, China, on April 4, 2008. The Qingming Festival is a traditional Chinese festival usually occurring around April 5 of the Gregorian calendar. For the Chinese, it is a day to remember and honor one's ancestors at grave sites. Young and old pray before the ancestors, sweep the tombs and offer food, tea, wine, chopsticks, (joss) paper accessories, and/or libation to the ancestors. Photo by Lucas Schifres/Pictobank
