Why 2300
In ancient times, 2300 hours was when a new day began.

The first day of the Hungry Ghost Festival is 11 August, so by the above reckoning, 11 August starts at 2300 hours tonight.

Hi Nach, 25 August (15 Lunar month) is the most yin and fierce day of the seventh month for this year?

It is when the Hungry Ghost Festival is at its peak, yes.

Shared liao on first page; look again.

Do not antagonise the ghosts in any way.

Do not ask them for blessings or favours. You are praying FOR them, not TO them.

Refrain from disturbing the offerings for the ghosts (it is okay to clear or move them several hours after they have been laid out or burned), or trespassing into spaces reserved for them.

The principal days on which offerings are made en masse are the first, fifteenth and last days of the Seventh Month.

Offerings for random hungry ghosts should not be laid out or burned within your home or its compound; do this some distance away, or at a public place like a temple.

Offerings for your loved ones can be made within the grounds of your home, and should always include an address slip with the intended recipient's full name, date of birth and date of death.

Do not offer anything apart from food, traditional incense paper and simple paper clothing.

It is kind to make offerings to the Hell deities, as well, because they are tasked with protecting you from the hungry ghosts and maintaining the peace; offer them tobacco, alcohol and roasted meat.

Sibei sian. Need to inhale toxic smoke caused by all these superstitious folks again.
QFT..

always loathe all those inconsiderate people who burn on the grass patches or on the common pathway when the designated bins are just metres away.

idiots.

Hi bro,

Waterpipe_man here. If I go burn at the public bins, my intent is for my family members. Budden will the ‘public spirits’ go snatch? How to prevent?

Thanks

As mentioned earlier, burn family offerings separately from public offerings, and always include an address slip.

Then they will respond in kind unless prevented from doing so.

Hopefully the Hell deities will be nearby to save you.
