I wonder about the taboos. Is it like the catholic thing of not eating chocolate? Or do they think that this will have a better chance of them dying during ghost month? Very interesting. I might want to try it for my personal ghosts. [:O]

Believe me, the hungry ghost month is purely an invention of superstitious Chinese.
From where I come from, the Chinese do believe in it. Equally strange ideas of burning paper made houses, cell phones and servants, thinking that the burnt items will transported to "hell" for the enjoyment of the deceased. And equally odd belief is that everyone goes to hell, to suffer for their sins and after "cleansing", return to be incarnated as humans or animals (if u did many bad things[:(][xx(])
Till today, I am still amazed why "thinking" adults can believe in these things????
