Flying kites is a traditional activity on on Qingming Festival or Tomb-Sweeping Day. People like flying kites on Qingming Festival or Tomb-Sweeping Day, no matter in the daytime or at night. In the evening, they attach strings of little colorful lanterns to the kite or the thread, which look like twinkling stars in the sky, giving them the name "sacred lantern". In the past, some people would cut off the thread when the kite flew to the sky, letting it drift to wherever the wind took it.
