In this Aug. 16, 2018, photo, Ethnic Chinese burns joss sticks and candles during the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival in Puchong, Malaysia. The Hungry Ghost Festival is celebrated during the seventh month of the Chinese lunar calendar, when prayers are offered to the dead and offerings of food and paper-made models of earthly items such as televisions, refrigerators and sport cars are burnt to appease the wandering spirits. It is believed that the gates of hell are opened during the month and the dead ancestors return to visit their relatives. (AP Photo/Yam G-Jun)
