April 5 is Tomb Sweeping Day

April 5 is Tomb Sweeping Day in China.  It is a holiday to honor one's ancestors, clean their tombs as it were.  Many Chinese actually choose to do the ritual earlier to avoid crowds.

April 5 is on a Tuesday this year.  TKIC will get that day off.   However, he has to go to Kindergarten this Saturday to make up for that day.  So often a holiday is not a holiday here in China because many have to work weekends to make up for the holiday day off.
