We know Americans have a day for ghosts. They call it Halloween. It’s a holiday for kids. Children enjoy going trick- or- treating to celebrate it. Adults like to wear their funny or strange costumes to join Halloween parades. However, Taiwanese have a whole month for ghosts. There are many traditional activities in the seventh lunar month, like releasing water lanterns, ritual of universal salvation, and Chiang Ku ceremony. We call this month the Ghost Month. In 2017, it started on August 22 and ended on September 19. The fifteenth day of the seventh lunar month is the Ghost Festival. We also call it the Hungry Ghost Festival. It often begins with a parade with beautiful paper lanterns in different shapes, such as boats and houses. On the eve of Ghost Festival, People will release these water lanterns to give directions to the lost ghosts and help them to find their way to the food offerings. Therefore, people prepare lots of food offerings to show their welcome and respect. And Keelung is famous for releasing water lanterns in Taiwan. People believe that the farther the lanterns float on the water, the more money they will have in the coming year. These activities are very interesting, aren’t they?
