The spirits jailed in Hell are called ghosts. They said the gate of Hell will open, and the ghosts will travel to the towns in the 7th lunar month every year. It's a one-month-long Halloween party for the ghosts. People have better feasting on them. People are afraid that ghosts play trick-or-treat games. That is why the Chinese call the 7th lunar month Ghost Month. More information about Chinese Ghost Month is at www.chinesefortunecalendar.com below.
