7th Month

The 7th month of the lunar calendar is designated as the hungry ghosts festival. The Chinese believe the gates of Hell open and the ghosts roam our world during this month. People burn hell money and setup alters near their home and workplace to appease these spirits. Getais appear during this time and the first 2 rows are left open for you know who lah, don't sit there.
