These nervous souls or pretas are spirits and reincarnated scary creatures of people who died unluckily, which are thought to cause difficulty among the living. Having these frightful creatures around is thought to be bad luck by Chinese folks.
HK In an identical manner, folk from HK also celebrate the Halloween holiday to steer the spirits back to their world. Korea Koreans remember the Halloween or Chusok during the month of Aug. When you have a difficulty, you have got to be prepared to be truthful about it.
