Today is the third day of the Chinese lunar calendar in July.

There are many ghost month taboo.

It is forbidden to play in places with water.(A resentful ghost will pull you down do scapegoat)
It is forbidden to dry clothes so that they do not find a place to inhabit and attach to wet clothes.
Should not buy a car to buy a house or move.
Hear someone calling your name, remember not to look back, at night.
Don't slap others' shoulders. Scaring others can easily lead to ghosts attaching to others.

There are as many as twenty-two taboos, and Rael only lists a few. (Quite often hear taboo)

On July 1st of the lunar calendar, the Yama ordered the opening of the gates of hell.
a sinner who is punished in hell all year round (the evil spirit or ghost)
Allowed out of hell, short-term wander, enjoy the month of incense. There are also delicious foods.

Lunar June the last day.
11pm to 1am.
Taoist temple. Choose this time to open the door in the middle of the temple. (or open the small door at the deepest part of the temple)
by the Taoist priest chanting the open door to hell. (ceremony)

Lunar July and a half: Every household will prepare some sacrificial offering. To commemorate them, we will prepare delicious food. between-meal nibbles, Drinks, fruits, instant noodles, canned.  Traditional people, they will prepare chicken (can also be duck and goose), as well as fish and pork.
Under the table where the sacrificial offerings are placed. We place a new washbasin with water and a new towel on the ground. This is to provide deceased who have water and towels to freshen up with.

"In this month, we forbid the word "ghost". Instead, we call it "good brother."
Also try not to wear white clothing, because that represents the deceased.

Today is the seventh lunar month and a half.

Loud sound of firecrackers outside, in commemoration of the end of the process of brothers.
After burning a good brother's various silver papers (including paper money)
Most of us will put firecrackers.
A roll of firecrackers ignited audible
Many children, including Rael, will cover their ears.
(For fear of firecrackers sound)

Even if Rael stays at home, can hear the sound of firecrackers coming from afar.

Very good Rael.

And... this forum is so dead, I think we will only have to gather around to listen to Rael's stories about ghosts nowmore - he might be the last person who contributes something at all. Really sad to see all the old members go and the forum to come to an utter standstill...

Well... well... I've tried whatever I've could, with more or less resistance. I don't know the value on my "contributions", however, but some nice discussions have been had.

Today's a sad sentiment from Mystic The Light Who Shineth Forth In Irradiant Splendour... lol!

People may well return. Quietness and being busy tend to be cyclical for just about every forum I have been a part of. Discord servers seem to be the exception once they hit a certain population point.
