Paper Money To be Burned in Taipei, C hina

Did you know that it's a custom to burn paper money in Taipei? Incredible stuff, but there you go this is the right spirit to have, their attachment to the much sort after paper is non existent it seems. There is a credit crunch around us here so we in the West wouldn't dare increase our hardship by burning the little we have.

But there is another consideration that has been forgotten and that is, environmental safety, burning the notes would create a heavy mass of pollution. The government is therefore doing a lot to ensure that people are aware that this practice though grounded in their culture has little or no place in todays world as consideration has to be given to keeping the environment from pollution.
Will you be burning anything this summer?
