The One With Hungry Ghost Festival

Wow, I just realised that tonight is the start of the Hungry Ghost Festival, thanks to this tweet from Brad.

Hungry Ghosts Festival

Not that I do pay attention to Hungry Ghost Festival. While I do take note of the usual housewife precautions about not going out until late at night, not to venture into dark areas, to trust your instinct when something feels wrong etc etc etc… I don’t really think much about the festivities.

How festive can you get during the month when the dead revisit the living and the living remember the dead?

Still, it’ll probably do me good to visit the Wong Tai Sin temple just to pray for my recently departed uncle, whom joined my grandfather and great grandmother.
