Lantern Festival, also known as Shangyuan Festival or Yuanxiao Festival, falls on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese calendar. This holiday marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations and has a history of over 2000 years.
The festival is mainly celebrated by lighting and releasing traditional lanterns. These lanterns come in various shapes and sizes, from simple round ones to intricate dragon and phoenix designs. They are often brightly colored and carry wishes for good fortune and happiness.

Apart from lanterns, the festival is also famous for its sweet glutinous rice dumplings called yuanxiao. These dumplings are made with rice flour and filled with sweet fillings like sesame paste, red bean paste, or jujube paste. In addition, lion and dragon dances, temple fairs, and other cultural performances are common during the Lantern Festival.
The origins of the Lantern Festival are rooted in Chinese folklore. According to legend, the Jade Emperor, the ruler of heaven, was angered by a villager who had accidentally killed his favorite goose. In order to appease the gods, the villagers decided to light lanterns all over the town. The Jade Emperor was so impressed by the beautiful display that he forgave the villagers and the tradition of lighting lanterns began.
Today, the Lantern Festival has become an important holiday for Chinese people around the world. It is a time for families to come together, enjoy traditional food and activities, and wish for good luck in the new year. In recent years, modern lanterns with LED lights and remote-controlled designs have been introduced, but the traditional handmade lanterns remain a staple of the festival.
In conclusion, the Lantern Festival is a colorful and joyful holiday that celebrates the end of the Chinese New Year. With its rich cultural traditions and delicious food, it is a time to bring people together and spread happiness and good fortune. So, if you're in China during this time, be sure to join in the festivities and experience the magic of the Lantern Festival for yourself!
