With only 3% Christianity in Taiwan, our lifes here are anything but "normal" from the American view. From family worship, to idols, to seeing demon possessed people on the streets to this... a loud puppet show put on at the temple behind our house. The puppet show isn't put on for kids but for Spirits who dwell in the temples... the spirits got to be kept happy so they don't bring bad luck. (Video can be found on Graces's Facebook page!)
