7th month ghost festival so what?

i m here to rant.
people have started burning their offering since last night from about 11pm onwards, which kept me awake due to the SMELL OF THE SMOKE!!!

Are they timid,superstitious, or afraid of getting killed by ghost? why burn it during the night?i'm very fed up due to their serious pollution to the air environment

Re: 7th month ghost festival so what?

This is a Chinese tradition that was hand down over the generations.

Its an offering to them for the family to enjoy good luck and wealth.

The burning is done at night bcos the beliefs that the "Good Bros" is able to roam around and daytime, they are "resting"!

I guess you are not Chinese, do respect other races' traditions and customs.

It seem you too young to acknowledge the tradition Chinese culture. These were not you thinks of superstitious, timid, or afraid of getting killed by ghost. The fact to respect our ancestor.

Young boy ......... ! Read more culture book but not "study death-book" ......
