Hence each year the Chinese would burn fake money, a kind of notes that filled with borderless imagination. Burning the ghost money, calling their names, the money would go with the wind and be delivered to the deceased. Then they won’t suffer in that world. Meanwhile the path that bonding these two worlds is not easy to go. Not to mention burning your ghost money in Europe, how can it travel all the way to China and what adventures would it encounter?
