Ghost Festival (also known as Hungry Ghost Festival and Ghost Month, sometimes referred to as the Chinese Halloween) is a month-long traditional holiday of religious significance to both Buddhists and Taoists which has some similarities to Halloween. It is celebrated in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan and by Chinese communities in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and elsewhere. Ghost Festival takes up the entire seventh lunar month, which roughly corresponds to August in the Western calendar. The fifteenth day of the month, known as Ghost Day, is considered to be the most important day of the festival. It is believed that the gates of hell are opened during Ghost Month and ghosts are free to walk the Earth.
