In this Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016 photo, an ethnic Chinese man throws joss papers to a paper-made statue of Chinese deity known as "Da Shi Ye," or "Guardian God of Ghosts," during the Ghost festival in Kajang, outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Ghost festival is celebrated during the seventh month of the Chinese lunar calendar, when prayers are offered to the dead and offerings of food and paper-made models of items such as televisions, refrigerators and sport cars are burnt to appease the wandering spirits. It is believed that the gates of hell are opened during the month and the dead ancestors return to visit their relatives. (AP Photo/Joshua Paul, File)
