Presentation: Chinese Myths and Monsters at Halloween!

Celebrate spooky season with a fun presentation about China’s monsters, ghosts, demons and other supernatural creatures! China has a festival that has some similarities to Halloween, the Ghost Festival which falls in August. But we thought this presentation would be a great one to have at Halloween!

‘Zhong Kui Going on Excursion’ by Gong Kai (1222-1307).

Join Cultural Keys online on October 26th for a fascinating presentation on the supernatural creatures from Chinese religion and folk tales.
