Hungry Ghosts versus Ramadhan

This year, the Chinese Hungry Ghost month begins from the end of July – running between 31st July to the 28th August 2011. The Night of the Hungry Ghost (where the Chinese believes the gates of the underworld completely open) falls on the 15th night of the 7th lunar month; on the western calendar this is on the 14th August 2011.
