Today is the festival for honouring your ancestors ...
Today is the variously known 中元节，鬼节习俗，七月半
A notice went up in our 小区 a few days ago part of which said:
禁正在楼道，户内焚烧祭祖物品，切勿靠边车辆，绿化带，易燃易爆物品等地方祭祖焚烧，以避免由此引发意外事故。I haven't noticed any unusual fires so our 尊敬的业主/住户 zūnjìngdeyèzhǔ/zhùhù (respected owners and residents) must have taken notice and behaved accordingly.
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
