Just wanna share with everyone here,

Tomorrow (today here) marks the 7th month of the Lunar Calendar. The Chinese believes that during this lunar month, the gates of hell are opened and the spirits will be free to roam around with the living. Well this is traditionally the month where we make offerings to our dear departed, burn incense and "hell notes" to our "dear brothers". We call this the Hungry Ghost Festival.

Just sharing. Smile

Thank you.

I've seen several documentaries on this festival and would love to attend one some time.

A fascinating & beautiful festival in your ancient & wonderful culture. Please enjoy it doubly for those of us that can only be there in spirit.

Thank you for sharing.

I will sleep tonight and try to dream of my ancestors and more recent elder losses; maybe no food for them, but perhaps a dram of malt whiskey.

Thanks for highlighting this Smile

I will do what Prof B.C. and Doc Steve so said:
I wish you all a great spooky festival and as Doc Steve said I'll sleep well tonight waiting for the spirits to visit me and perhaps tell a story or two. The drinks are on Doc Steve Smile
