Burning money

This was a couple of days after Tet, and the locals were burning decorations and the “fake” money gifts.

“Hell money/ghost money/spirit money…call it what ever you want. These are a form of joss paper resembling legal tender bank notes burnt as offerings to the deceased. It is essentially a way of showing respect to the dead that has become an important part of the culture.”
