About Ghost Festival Taiwan:
If west has a Halloween festival to appease the departed souls, then Taiwan has its own set of festival or a fete which is dedicated to the departed souls from the underworld. Traditionally the festival has been celebrated throughout China on the fifteenth day of very lunar month.
There are some festivals which are associated with ghosts and spirits, one being the Buddhist Ullalbana festival and the Ghost festival of the Taoist. Since all the traditions are some what related to the honoring of the ghost this month is aptly named as the ghost month.
In the island nation of Taiwan the ghost festival is celebrated by slaughtering of a pig and a ship which when bundled with wine and meat is a great mix and people enjoy it with all fun and frolic.
