Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

The Ghost Festival is the height of the Ghost Month, the seventh month in the traditional Chinese calendar. During this time, spirits return and roam the earth. The first day is celebrated with offerings to ancestors and to ghosts without families, so they will not bring you harm, including food and ghost money: money burned so that the spirits can use it. Ullambana is the day when the spirits are said to be most active. Feasts and ceremonies are often performed to help ease their suffering.
