Feeding gods and ghosts in Taiwan
Some tables of food offerings outside shops and restaurants in Tainan, southern Taiwan:
With the 'three sacrifices' ä¸‰ç‰², chicken, fish and pork, in pride of place
The same table as the one above, from another angle
These spirits appear to like tea...
...while these ones prefer junk food
Packaged chocolate drinks offered with the fruit and incense
A huge feast
