    Children's Day in Taiwan - April 4

    Taiwan designated April 4 as Children's Day, pursuant to Article 5 of the Order to Implement Commemoration Days and Holidays.

    The holiday dates back to 1931 and since then schools often hold special activities in order to celebrate the occasion. Because of pressure from parents demanding to accompany their children in the celebration, Taiwan celebrated Women's Day together with Children's Day on the 4th of April 1991. Since then, the 4th of April has been known as "The Combined Holidays of Women's Day and Children's Day" (Chinese: 婦女節、兒童節合併假期). It has been a public holiday of Taiwan since 2011.

    Tomb Sweeping Day in Taiwan - April 5 to 6, 2018

    The Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb-Sweeping Day in English, is a traditional Chinese festival on the first day of the fifth solar term of the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar.

    This makes it the 15th day after the Spring Equinox, either 4th or 5th April in a given year.Other common translations include Chinese Memorial Day and Ancestors' Day. Qingming has been regularly observed as a statutory public holiday in China. In Taiwan, the public holiday is now always observed on 5th April to honor the death of Chiang Kai-shek on that day in 1975. It became a public holiday in mainland China in 2008.

    In the mainland, the holiday is associated with the consumption of qingtuan, green dumplings made of glutinous rice and barley grass. In Taiwan, the similar confection is known as caozaiguo or shuchuguo.
