Auspicious days for wedding date
Asked by L***g | 7/22/2015 3:28:08 AM
We are planning to have a wedding on Aug 20, 2016.
I heard Aug 2016 is a 7th month on Chinese calendar,
which is avoided by Chinese to get married on that month.
Is it true?

There is such a custom in China. As the Ghost Festival falls on the Chinese lunar month of July, the month is called Ghost month. The Chinese people think the month is auspicious to nothing including wedding. Because it's said all ghosts will come out from the hell and visit their families during the month.
In fact, it's an superstition. As long as you choose an auspicious date for wedding during the month, there is no problem. I checked the Chinese almanac calendar for you and found Aug 20, 2016 is an auspicious day for you both. So, don't worry about this. The date is good.
