Money to heaven

Raising the dead

Indonesians of Chinese descent throw fake money to honor their ancestors during the Hungry Ghost Festival in Medan, North Sumatra, on Aug. 31. During the festival, prayers are said so that the souls of ancestors will go to heaven. According to tradition, ghosts and spirits are believed to come out from hell during the seventh month in the Chinese lunar calendar called the Ghost Month.
