10 Ways To Invite Luck At Home During Ghost Month
For starters, do not begin construction or renovation during this period
Just on the heels of Metro Manila’s emancipation from the second round of MECQ (Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine), into its second version of GCQ (General Enhanced Community Quarantine) comes the beginning of Ghost Month. It is to be observed from August 19, 2020, through September 16, 2020. During the first day of the seventh lunar month, per Chinese custom, the Gates of Hell open. Malevolent hungry ghosts from the underworld come up into our realm where their souls temporarily roam and visit with family and friends. It is generally feared that they make victims among the living during this time. This continues until the gates of hell close on the thirtieth day of the seventh lunar month, which falls on September 16, 2020.
