Performers dance during a parade for the Hungry Ghost Festival in Hong Kong on August 22, 2013. The festival, celebrated in the seventh lunar month of the lunar new year calendar among communities in southern China, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan, marks the belief that the ‘Gates of Hell’ are opened to let out the hungry ghosts who then wander in the land of the living while foraging for food. During the festival, food offerings are made while paper money and joss sticks are burnt outside homes to keep the spirits of dead ancestors happy and to bring good luck.
