JOSS PAPER

祭祀金銀紙

  • Joss paper is burned at funerals and during important dates thereafter to help the deceased pay off debts, trade for goods and exist comfortably in the spirit world. 

  • The relatives hoped that the deceased could lead a happy life in the underworld, and they burned the Chinese joss paper money and other paper sacrifices to them.
