The Hungry Ghost Festival — Hong Kong

The Hungry Ghost Festival in Hong Kong actually takes place between mid-August to early September each year. It is on the 15th night of the seventh Chinese month when the gates of hell are opened to allow all ghosts to receive food and drinks. During the festival people try to appease ghosts who drift on the Earth. People will burn papier-mâché items like clothes, gold and other valuables to feed their ancestors so they can use it in the afterlife. They will also leave food out for them to eat, too. The Yu Lan Ghost Festival will last the entire month and has been held for more than 100 years.
