Most Asian Chinese beleives that during this month the Gates of Hell will open up and spirits are
able to mix with the living. While some of these spirits are welcomed, like those of
deceased relatives, other may send wrong signals . The seventh month is
considered Not a very Good time to get married or move house and superstitious people
will try to be home before dark. Swimming ,Beaches and water sports event are also to
be avoided as they like to near water
To honour the spirits of their ancestors as well as appease any angry ghosts, people
leave offerings of food and burn paper replicas of worldly goods like cars, houses and Hell Money .

Another unique offering during Hungry Ghost Month is getai shows. These song and dance
performances, often by scantily-clad women, are entertainment for the spirits and the
local residents who come for dinners, drinks, and auctions. They’re so loud they usually
attract the whole neighbourhood, but the front row of seats is always left empty for the
ghosts.
Rather than being one central place to experience the festival, Hungry Ghost month events
can be seen around Chinatown and in residential areas across the island and around regional countries
