According to Chinese folk legends, every year on the first day of the seventh lunar month the gates of hell open for ghosts to feast and wander until the gates close again on 30th day. This event coined as the “Hungry Ghost Month” has been a long-running tradition that focuses on appeasing these wandering spirits. This 2019, the ghost month will commence on August 1 and last until August 29.
Through the years, many believers have come up with their own set of superstitious taboos which created a cultural custom of avoiding anything during the month. Thus instead of giving you more lists that would prevent you from doing things, we have come up with a list of fun activities that you can still do during the Ghost Month. Here’s a rundown:
Travelling to far destinations is frowned upon during the ghost month but that does not mean you can’t have a mini vacation. You can still have that much needed R&R with a staycation at Discovery Suites. The hotel is located right in the middle of the city so no more roadtrips or plane rides needed. The best part? We are now offering special weekday and weekend rates.
Going out late at night is supposed to be prevented during the Ghost month since humans are perceived to be weaker and more prone to demonic possessions when the sun is down. Not to worry though, late night outs are not necessary when you have happy hour deals starting in the afternoon. You can definitely start early and end early. Happy Hour is available daily from 5pm – 10pm at the 22 Prime Lounge.
