清明节2021 / Qing Ming Jie 2021

English Version

2021 年的清明节是在阳历的4月4日。

清明是24节气的第5个节气。也是华人到祖先坟墓、灵骨塔扫墓的日子。

有很多的朋友们问我们,一定要在正日去扫墓吗?你可以在正日的10天前后去也可以。

要注意的事项

扫墓有没有禁忌? 是有的,虽然有一些朋友们相信百无禁忌。最主要的是要尊重已故的人和物。不要在墓地说出不敬的话或做些不敬的事。

尊敬 – 不要说不敬的话或行为

扫墓的时间 – 最佳的时间是在早晨的5点到中午的12点。午后阳气会慢慢的转阴。墓地的磁场一般比较阴加上午后的阳气转阴,不适合一些八字比较阴和运程弱的人。

孕妇或运程不佳的人,如可以避免到墓园是最好的。这些地方的磁场偏阴,会扰乱这些人的磁场。要是真的没办法一定要去,建议佩戴一些避煞的符令或者水晶来化解。

最佳时间 – 早晨5点到中午12点

不建议的时间 – 太阳下山和夜晚

拜拜的供品

祭祖的供品在不同的籍贯有些差异,一般都会准备食物,香烛,冥纸。除了祭拜先人的供品,还要准备拜后土的。

祭拜祖先的简单食品一般以三牲 (烧肉,鸡肉,鱼),水果 ,发糕,茶水。冥纸方面简单的就是一些金和银。一般我们用古力金和银,往生钱,溪钱和包袱。这些都能在我们的网购台买得到 – 清明节网购

后土的简单供品有水果,茶,白酒和金纸。

Important things to know

Respect – Do not say disrespectful words or behave disrespectfully

In fengshui and folk culture believes, the better time to visit these places are between 5am and 12 noon. This is according to the Ying and Yang theory. As the sun begins to set, the Yang energy will depreciate and replace by Yin energy. These places are consider Yin places. Going after sunset will be too Yin without the Yang to balance.
