When the gates of hell open
This year, on August 28th - the 15th day of the 7th month in the lunar calendar - it is Yu Lan festival in Hong Kong, also known as Hungry Ghost Festival. It’s believed that, after the gates of hell open, wandering ghosts roam the human world. To keep the ghosts appeased, people make fires, burn offering, prepare food and organise operas.
