The Ghost Festival is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the seventh lunar month. A solemn holiday, the Hungry Ghost Festival represents the connections between the living and the dead, earth and heaven, body and soul. Activities of the festival include preparing ritual offerings of food, and burning ghost money (or paper money) to please the visiting ghosts and spirits as well as deities and ancestors. Other activities include burying and releasing miniature paper boats and lanterns on water, which signifies "giving directions to the lost ghosts."
