Description : The Hungry Ghost Festival which falls during the Seventh Lunar Month is celebrated on a grand scale in Penang.
Dring this month, it is believed that the Gates of Hell are thrown open for spirits and ghosts from the nether world to roam freely in search for food. Thus, makeshift altars are erected at roadsides where giant joss sticks are lit and food is offered to appease their hunger.
This practice is believed to ward off bad luck. Staged opera performances and puppet shows are also conducted at these venues for the entertainment of the ghosts, spirits and the public on a nightly basis.
