People take this holiday quite seriously. They visit their family tombs and leave gifts. Traditionally a full chicken was left, but now people bring all kinds of food as well as paper money and paper versions of cars, books, cell phones, etc.–things people will need in the afterlife.

Maybe you’ll need a villa?

Or maybe just a pack of cigs?
