Hungry ghost festival

August 22nd, 2017 by Ah Doe

Just in a blink of an eye we have already been through half of 2017. How has your 2017 been so far?

It’s officially the 7th month of the lunar calendar. In other words, it’s hungry ghost festival now. This is the time when people starts paying respect to the deceased, cinemas and television will start showing horror movies.

Hungry Ghost Festival

Some people relate hungry ghost festival to Halloween because of the spirits, the dead and the spooky atmosphere I guess but hungry ghost festival in fact, promotes the concept of filial piety more than the ritual ceremonies.

Musically, the closest music that I can associate with is The Piano Duet from Corpse Bride.
