It is a tradition in China during the Tombsweeping Day to burn paper money to their deceased families and relatives. However, it is banned this year in Ha'erbin, capital of Heilongjiang province. According to the notice issued by the local government, people cannot make and sell paper offerings including ghost money and paper. I pay my respects every year to my grandparents. We offer incense, food, money and wish they can use them and enjoy a happy afterlife. It is a bit superstitious, but it is a tradition passed down over generations. There is nothing wrong, but in recent years the offerings have become outrageous. There's a plethora of gadgets for sale, including cameras, laptops, ipads, and villas. Despite this, is it appropriate for the government to ban all the offerings?
