10個盂蘭節禁忌

不要隨意跟別人勾肩搭背/拍人家肩膀。

相傳人的身上有三把火,頭頂一把,左右肩膀分別各一把,其中一把火要是滅了或會招惹遊魂野鬼。把手搭在別人的肩上變相是把他的火撲熄。

  • 游泳

此時好兄弟會和你玩鬼抬腳的遊戲,一不小心,命就被抬走了。

  • 熬夜

人氣最虛的時候是在深夜,鬼氣最旺的時候也是在深夜,相較之下,誰會贏。​

  • 撿路邊的錢

這些錢是用來買通牛頭馬面的,如果侵犯了他們東西,就很容易被他們教訓。

  • 輕易的回頭

當走在荒郊野外或人煙稀少的地方時,覺得『好像』有人叫你,不要輕易回頭,那可能是好兄弟。

  • 靠牆

好兄弟平時喜歡依附在冰涼的牆上休息,此舉很容易引起鬼上身。

  • 筷子插在飯中央

這是祭拜的模式,就好比香插在香爐上,此舉只會招來好兄弟來與你分享食物。​

  • 忌亂踩冥紙

冥紙是獻給鬼魂的祭品,在焚燒時,鬼魂們會聚集在旁邊搶拾,如果你在焚燒冥紙的時候亂踩亂跳,難保不會阻礙到它們的行動,鬼魂們生氣之餘,自然會對你不利。

  • 忌穿黑衣紅衣

穿黑衣,皆因黑黑沉沉的顏色,鬼怪靈體最喜歡依附在此。紅色對於惡鬼來說,屬標奇立異的顏色,容易惹起注意。

  • 吹口哨

晚上吹口哨,當心好兄弟喜歡你。

10 Hungry Ghost Festival Taboos

  • If someone taps you on the shoulder or calls your name from behind, do not turn around and look or answer the call. Seriously, DON'T ANSWER or the spirit may reveal itself to you.

  • Don't go swimming. It is said that the vengeful water spirits might try to drag the living into the water as their substitute so that they can be reincarnated.

  • Avoid staying out too late at night and try to return home by sunset, more so if you are alone. This applies to everyone, especially children and pregnant women.

  • Don't pick up any strange items you stumble upon on the streets, especially coins.

  • Do not respond when you hear your name being called late at night.

  • Avoid leaning on or walking near walls, especially in the dark. It is believed that ghosts prefer to walk or fly along walls and stick to dark corners.

  • Don't stab chopsticks on your bowl of rice.

  • Don't touch, step, or kick prayer items and offering for the hungry ghosts, especially those from temporary altars placed by the roadside. You should also refrain from making jokes or complaining about the prayer altars.

  • Don't wear red or black clothing, the unseen are especially attracted to these colours and may follow you home. Ladies, avoid wearing high heels too!

  • Don't whistle at night
