Traditionally, the Chinese burn joss paper (ghost money) for their ancestors so that they can enjoy their afterlives. Houses, cars, and gold bars made out of paper were burnt in the weeks following a person's death. However, in recent times, as consumer culture takes hold of the Chinese culture, joss paper products have become more elaborate, reflecting the desires of those who are alive. In an increasingly westernized society, designer handbags, laptop computers, iPods, and fast food made out of paper are burnt for the recently deceased.
