Halloween is coming!

Halloween, as we know it in the United States, involves getting dressed up in costumes, trick-or-treating and decorating pumpkins.

There is also a Festival of the Hungry Ghosts. A traditional Chinese festival and holiday celebrated by Chinese in many countries . It is like an other version of Halloween.This is a day respects to the dead, an attempt to make the angry spirits feel welcome and to subdue their antagonistic feelings. Chinese believe that during this month, the “Gates of Hell” are opened and souls of the dead are freed and allowed to roam the earth. They wander the earth in search of food and taking revenge to those who has wronged them in life. The citizens of China offer the spirits joss sticks, food, and gifts. It's purpose is to make them feel welcome and to satisfy their spiritual hunger. Gifts are designed and made of paper, represent objects to remind the spirits of items they might have had when they were living on the planet before they passed away and feel comfortable. The Chinese feel that they have to satisfy the ghosts in order to get good fortune and luck in their lives. To welcome the ghosts, there are fires lit in China in celebration of Halloween and the festivals it inspired.

Halloween is becoming more and more popular, with hordes of revelers dressing up as ghosts, goblins and witches.To the Chinese, Halloween is like one huge decoration party. You’ll probably only find these parties in larger cities that have more expats living in them such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Finally Halloween is not the same in every country but it is a way to welcome the spirits of those who have passed away over the years, coming back to earth among the living.
