Hungry Ghost Festival

As other countries of Southeast Asia, in August Singapore hosts Hungry Ghost Festival. According to the legend, during this month the ‘Gates of Hell’ are opened, so ghosts come out of the lower realm, and may easily wander about the Earth searching for food and entertainment. Therefore every year, Singaporeans hold noisy festivals to please the dead and save mankind from misfortune. During the month, Singaporeans try to ‘feed’ the ghosts. At night, they offer some food at the steps of their houses: it’s common to prepare special sweet bread. Also, people give them directions to the food by lighting it with lanterns. Activities during the holiday itself include burning clothes, jewelry and other fine items made of papier-mâché and paper.
