The Hungry Ghost festival takes place on the seventh month of the Chinese calender it is believed that the gates of hell are opened up and ghosts are free to roam the earth where they seek food and entertainment….These are ghosts of the ancestors of those who forgot to pay tribute to them after they died, or those who were never given a proper ritual send-off. Grand paper edifices of the Hungry Ghost are created and offerings of food, drink and money are laid before them.
