6 Ways to Prepare for the Ghost Month

Keep in mind these handy hints in time for the revered occasion celebrated by the Chinese community

Shares

In just a few days, from July 27 to August 24 to be exact, the gates of hell will open up, unleashing an army of hungry ghosts to roam upon this Earth. Okay, we’re not talking about the latest Hollywood blockbuster. We’re talking about the Ghost Festival, an occasion celebrated by the Chinese community.

These hungry ghosts are either long-forgotten ancestors, unrepentant evil-doers, or beings who passed away in a sudden or violent manner, says Master Hanz Cua, Feng Shui and Astrology expert. They are likely to create mischief, cause despair, or worst, wreak havoc on  unsuspecting people, especially those who do not practice the necessary rituals to appease their hunger.

Master Hanz notes that these days are usually characterized by tragedy and sadness. Some of history’s tragic events usually happen around this time. People would thus do well to postpone potentially life-changing occasions until after the Ghost Festival.

No new businesses are usually opened during Ghost Month. No contracts are signed, no surgeries scheduled, and no extreme travel adventures taken. Suffice it to say that families must not move into new homes during these precarious times, or undertake any major renovation projects.

At home, some moves maybe taken to calm down these restless spirits, says Master Hanz. We've collated all tips into one infographic below --- so feel free to share with your friends!
