Jason Wordie - graduated from Hong Kong University, with a History degree and now conducts historical walks in Hong Kong, as well as giving historical lectures for a variety of local community groups and cultural and well-known corporate organisations. He has made his home in the New Territories for over thirty years and is constantly updating and revising his talks about Hong Kong and Macau.

His books include Macao – People and Places, Past and Present, published by Angsana Ltd in 2013; Streets: Exploring Hong Kong Island, published by Hong Kong University Press in 2002 and its companion volume Streets: Exploring Kowloon, published 2007 by Hong Kong University Press.  For more than eighteen years, Jason has had a series of regular columns in the South China Morning Post. His current column, Then and Now, appears every week in the Sunday Morning Post’s Post Magazine.

Flickering red candles in darkened doorways, women beating shoes on the ground under busy fly-overs, coins scattered on the ground on funeral routes and numerous seemingly inexplicable aspects of local life - Hong Kong has one of the most significant – and superficially obvious - survivals of animistic beliefs within a post-industrialised society in the world.

In this lecture we will explore many commonly encountered ritual observances, and clarify many of those “what was that about?” questions you have probably asked yourself many times.
