A closer look at the historic Keelung Ghost Festival
The China Post August 17, 2016
Fifteen family clan associations
rotate sponsorship of the event, which has been sponsored by civil
organizations since 1856. It is the biggest worshiping rite to pay
respects to deceased ancestors by offering sacrifices in Taiwan.
People believe this is all because Taiwanese have the ability to turn
their historical wounds from ancient battles into positive energy. It is
not only about passing down tradition, but also the spirit of Taiwan
culture from clan to clan. That is why it has been awarded as the
National First Invisible Cultural Asset. -?
