Zhongyuan Festival is what we call Ghost Festival. It's the 15th day of July in the lunar calendar. It's said that ghosts will appear on this day, and they need to burn paper money. So it happens that on this day of birthday, when it collides with the birthday on the Zhongyuan Festival, do you want to have a birthday? How about Zhongyuan birthday? Let's get to know each other.

On the 15th day of the seventh lunar month, it is the traditional festival of the Chinese people. It is understood that in some places, it is also said that the "Ghost Festival" (Ghost Festival) is on the 14th day of the seventh lunar month. In many places in Guangxi, people will solemnly sacrifice their ancestors with ducks on the 14th day of the seventh lunar month. It is also said that on this day, the "ghosts of the lonely soul" will come to the world to receive sacrifices. If it is fixed, the "Ghost Festival" will be held In the worship of ancestors, they hold the attitude of awe, but people's various nervous, afraid and suspicious mentality is unnecessary.

Every year, if you have a few days before or after the birthday of Zhongyuan Festival, you will often see paper money burning on the street. Compared with other people's birthdays, it looks like a strange painting. But in fact, Zhongyuan Festival is also called "Yulan basin Festival". In Buddhism, it is called "Buddha's happy day" and "mother saving day". It is a day advocating filial piety.
