10 Things That Will Get a Person In Trouble During The 7th Month

The Hungry Ghost Festival or 7th Month, is the scariest time of the year. The ghosts of Chinese ancestors are let out of hell to seek entertainment and roam around. Which is why we burn money, loads of money, BMW’s and bungalows to appease them.

You really don’t want to incur their wrath, so here are 10 things to avoid during the 7th month!

1.  Stepping or kicking the offerings on the pavement

Sometimes it feels like you’re playing hopscotch on the pavement, trying to avoid the offerings strewn all over. Stepping on offerings is a well-known taboo so if you accidentally step on them, it is advisable to apologize to the spirits.

2.  Swimming, especially at night

Belief has it that those who previously drowned will look for victims in order to rebirth.

3.  Whistling at night

Whistling attracts spirits. So don’t whistle, pretty straightforward

4.  Don’t look back if you’re alone and someone taps your shoulder at night

Apparently, turning only your head will cause a “flame” on our shoulders to go out, making you more “vulnerable”. So, turn your entire body instead of only your head.

5. Don’t pick up anything from the ground

6.  Opening umbrellas, especially red ones, at night

It is said that opening an umbrella at home is bad luck, and red attracts spirits.

If you didn’t already know, the front row, empty seats at a Getai (live stage performance held during Ghost Festival) are meant for them.

8.  Staying out too late at night

Again, a well-known taboo. Children, especially – wandering spirits can possess children easier.
