Happy Halloween to everyone in Zhuhai, China!
China has a very similar festival, it is the Chinese Obon festival.  In Guangdong province, it is on Lunar calendar July 14th.  Other places, it could be on July 15th(Lunar).  We call it 鬼仔节, 孟兰节 or 中元节。 You don't want to say Happy " 鬼仔节, 孟兰节,中元节" in Chinese, it is a day for dead people.  Traditionally, old people would tell kids don't go out that night as ghosts are all over on the streets.  They come to carry watermelons and other foods, so don't eat watermelons on that night grandma said.
