Ghost Money

Joss Paper
13 Aug, 2013 | Janet of Taiwan

Joss paper, also known as ghost money, are sheets of paper and/or paper-crafts made into burnt offerings which are common in traditional Chinese religious practices including the veneration of the deceased on holidays and special occasions. Joss paper, as well as other papier-mâché items, are also burned in traditional Chinese funerals, to ensure that the spirit of the deceased has lots of good things in the afterlife.

Janet is a kindergarten teacher in Taiwan.
