Burning paper

In the past, urban families burned their paper offerings in a variety of containers such as cooking oil tins. Now it is more common for urban worshippers to use the red enamel portable metal ovens, for sale at most retail paper shops. In the earlier days people were allowed to burn paper offerings within the public housing blocks. In the more recently built housing estates, burning in the stairwells and other public spaces is now prohibited as a fire hazard.
