Eight Tips to Survive Hungry Ghost Festival

This month is Ghost Month, so you'd better be prepared to deal with some big bad spirits

08·16·2011

Honor ghosts by following the festival’s rituals, otherwise you’ll be plagued by bad luck!

  1. Create an altar at a crossroads; ghosts can come from all four directions, giving you maximum exposure for spirit worship
  2. Talk to your ancestors, as they can hear you at this time of year
  3. Don’t go swimming – spirits will come and snatch you away
  4. Don’t go outside after sunset – the ghosts are out and about at this time
  5. Don’t move house – it angers the spirits who can’t find their family home
  6. Don’t open a business – with all the ghosts about, you are bound to have bad luck
  7.  Don’t get married – again, bad luck and bad sense
