When hungry ghosts roam the earth
For a month each year, hungry ghosts are said to roam the earth. During the seventh lunar month or the Hungry Ghost Festival, most people still get a bit superstitious. We're told not to step on ashes, kick (or worse, eat) the plates of food, tread on joss sticks, swim at night... the list goes on. Flout these rules and you might end up sick, struck by bad luck or even possessed by a hungry and angry spirit.
