My Amazing Flying Lantern Experience

Posted by on 7 February 2011

Tonight, at a friend’s Chinese New Year open house, my children and I experienced for the very first time the magic of lighting a paper lantern and watching it float away, up, up to the sky.

It reminded me very much of that magical scene in Tangled…even though what we did was on a much, much smaller scale. But the experience was totally awesome all the same!

I’ll be watching the night sky for more of these lanterns on the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, a.k.a. Chap Goh Mei (Chinese: 十五暝), which should fall on the 17th of February this year.

Xin Nian Kuai Le! 新年快樂! Happy New Year!
