And this festival is what triggered me to write this post, I consider myself as a modern generation-Y girl who are rebellious towards traditional superstitions (or in my opinion stupistitions because some of them can be really ridiculous). But, I do believe in the existence of spirits, whether they come out or not during a particular month, but I believe that they are always around.
Since young , I have been told not to talk nonsense when I go to unfamiliar places, especially secluded ones such as mountains, island resorts and etc. Because the elderly believe that, if you talk about them, it will be regarded as an invitation for them to join the conversation.
Which is why I have a few things that I will not do and will forbid my family or friends from doing it when we are on a trip.
- Tell/ watch horror stories
- Talk anything related to it
- Play stupid games such as the Ouija board
- Drink alcohol, I refuse to drink in places that I am not familiar with. Not only I am afraid of the unseen, I am also scared of the humans who would take advantage or harm you when you are vulnerable.
