Joss paper, also known as ghost money, are sheets of paper made into burnt offerings common in Chinese ancestral worship such as the veneration of the deceased relatives on holidays and special occasions. They are also burned or buries in Asian funerals to bless the spirit of the deceased, ensuring comfort and happiness in their afterlife.
