Last night my young sister in hometown called me and asked when I will come back to hometwon. She said we could not pay our codolence to our mother and elder brother just at the day of Tome Sweeping Day. That is to say there is a taboo in our hometown, it may not be considered to respect the departed if you commemorate them in that very day. I did not hear this taboo untill my young sister gave me a call last night. Last year, the duration of three-day holiday was different from this year. I looked up the day-off notice last year. I came back to hometown at the first day of the short holiday and condoled my mother and elder brother then, but the third day of the holiday was the formal Tomb Sweeping Day and I came back home. So I didn't know the local taboo.

There are several taboos on the day of Tomb Sweeping Day. Here are some available only for reference, perhaps you can avoid leading to embarrassment.
First, you should be aware of local customs you should avoid doing, asking the relatives in your hometown.     
Second, don't take photos before the tomb.
Third, don't kid or make a joke at the grave site during the time of  ritual.
Fourth, don't have a birthday party if your birthday coincides with Tomb Sweeping Day, put off or hold ahead of that day. 
Sixth, you should dress yourself in light colors, avoiding wearing red clothes.

The above lists exclude those that may be thought superstitious. To spend a comfortable holiday, some knowledge about the taboo is necessary.
Of course, if there is no activity associated with commemoration, you can enjoy the short holiday at will. Nature is unfoldiing its beauty before you, and it is the best time to hang out or arrange a jaunt with your family members, friends, colleagues and so forth.
