Hungry Ghost Festival 农历七月中元节

In Chinese culture, the seventh month in the Chinese calendar is regarded as the Ghost Month, in which ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm.

Activities during the Ghost Month would include preparing ritualistic food offerings, burning incense, and burning joss paper, a papier-mache form of material items such as clothes, gold and other fine goods for the visiting spirits of the ancestors.
