What taboos during 7th Lunar Month

Since the 7th Lunar Month, aka Hungry Ghost Festival, is near, so what kind of things should we not do or should we do during this lunar month.

Share your thoughts.

Re: What taboos during 7th Lunar Month

1.dun step on the offerings on the floor (actually shouldnt step on them anytime, but 7th month tend to have more of them around).

2. dun joke around about ghosts.

3. try not to stay out too late (i used to not stay out past dark, but i think as long as ur area not too secluded can already...)

4. dun go swimming (i heard since young)

Good idea! But which idiot will implement such policy when it will severely affect our country's economy?

Re: What taboos during 7th Lunar Month

1. when someone call your name, dont turn your head, turn your whole body.

2. stay away from water bodies (swimming pool, swamps, lakes, longang, drain etc) esp at night!

3. dont put chopstick vertically! (resembles joss stick)

4. dont step on burnt offerings.. MOST important!

5. dont talk nonsense in public.. even if you love swearing and saying f word, try to keep it to your house only.

6. if you think something is following you, talk a short walk around, dont go home directly and when you reach home later, wash your feet.

7. dont pee on grasses, trees etc.

8. dont make fun of ghostly customs in public and laugh about it

9. try to avoid staying out late at night and avoid lifts if possible esp late night

10. avoid playgrounds esp at night (good solace place for lonely child spirit)

yeah 10 stuffs that would help you survive 7th month. most importantly, whether you believe in it or not, do respect it.

Try to avoid going swimming or places of water.. (there is water ghost, spirits who die during drowning)

Don't get married during the months of the hungry ghost

Don't move to a new house during the month, esp. at night (the ghost might follow you in the street and go back to your home)
