Every 7th month of the Lunar calendar, Chinese people in various parts of the world will celebrate the Hungry Ghost Festival (or Feast of the Wandering Souls).  On this day it is believed that the gates of hell are opened to allow the ghosts and spirits to roam the earth for 30 days.  How this festival is celebrated varies from country to country and over here in Singapore, it’s a busy time for Chinese who are Taoists or Buddhists.
