Honor Family with a Traditional Custom.
The Chinese burn joss paper to send family members money and material goods in the afterlife. It's common to see joss paper burned at funerals, on ancestor birthdays and during important holidays like the Qingming Festival and the Hungry Ghost Festival.
The most traditional types of joss paper are bamboo paper squares decorated with foil, spirit money designed to resemble legal tender currency and crafts in the shapes of common household items like shoes, clothing and jewelry.
The Chinese believe that a joss paper offering is conveyed into the spirit world through the fire's smoke. In today's modern world, caring for ancestors in the afterlife is a poignant way to pay respect for one's elders and departed family members.
Please note: Joss paper money is not legal tender currency issued by any bank or government institution and holds no cash value.
