Grappling With Ghosts 搶孤

Grappling with the Ghosts Festival 搶孤 is held on the last day of the Ghost Month holiday.  It’s a unique festival that celebrates the end to the trepidatious holiday when the dead are said to be walking the earth.  Why people need to climb greased poles to celebrate this day is beyond me, but it sure is cool!!!
