  With the changes of the times,the memorial turns to be a time for protection from evil and disease for the rest of year.People will hang healthy herbs on the front door to clear the bad luck of the house.Although the significance of the festival might be different with the past,it still gives the observer an opportunity to glimpse a part of the rich Chinese cultural heritage.
