there are many ghosts in chinese culture; they have been worshipped by the chinese for a few thousand years. even confucius said, "respect ghosts and gods, but keep away from them."

while many people believe in ghosts, there are others who don't. the chinese people often say, "if you believe it, there will be, but if you don't, there will not."

the ghost is a classical image in chinese culture, i.e., the young woman whose face is covered by long black hair, who dies due to misfortune, then comes back for revenge.

the word "ghost" for many chinese conjures up similar images. often the ghost is a beautiful young woman. the sudden switch from a beautiful girl to a frightening ghost is striking. the seemingly fragile, helpless and beautiful women turning into fearless killers is a favorite theme among asian movie directors and storywriters.

 chinese ghost festival

just as the west features halloween for ghosts and ghouls, the chinese have a holiday to honor the departed spirits of the underworld -- the chinese ghost festival. it is said that ghosts roam the world every year for one lunar month. in some areas of china, visitors can see small roadside fires, where believers burn paper money and other offerings to appease the restless spirits that have temporarily been released from hades.
