Kuei

Kuei.

A proportion of the souls of the departed who inhabit the "World of Shades," a region resembling this world, which is the "World of Light," in every particular, with the important exception that it has no sunshine. Kindly kuei are known, but the influence generally suggested is an evil one. They may only return to the World of Light between sunset and sunrise, except upon the fifth [liii]day of the Fifth Month (June), when they are free to come during the time known as the "hour of the horse," from eleven a.m. to one p.m.
