News, but not the serious kind
So it’s like doing them a favor, huh?
Blog Guy, I like it when you find interesting traditions practiced by other cultures, like for instance that “love market” that you wrote about last year.
Well, I see here in the Singapore Straits Times that the Chinese have entered the seventh month of the Lunar calendar, known as the Hungry Ghost month…
Let’s see. The story says the Yi people in Ejia town of Yunnan province, those who are still single, head to the streets for a festival…
That’s all you’ve got, Blog Guy? Some festival?
Yes, the Breast-Touching Festival. For three days, the men are welcome to touch the women’s….
I’m awake now, Blog Guy. Please continue.
Legend says, blah blah blah blah blah blah, to protect themselves from dead soldier ghosts looking to take “pure and untouched” ladies with them to the afterworld, single women began asking men to touch them, and the custom has continued.
