Lantern Festival

Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the first lunar month, is the last important festival in the Chinese New Year. Lantern Festival is one of the traditional festivals of Chinese and Chinese cultural circles and overseas Chinese. The first month is the first month of the lunar calendar. The ancients called "night" as "XIAO", so the first month of the first month of the year is called the Lantern Festival.

Since the ancient times, the custom of the Lantern Festival has been dominated by the warm and festive lighting customs. Traditional customs go out to enjoy the moon, light the flames, hi-light riddles, eat a lot of lanterns, pull rabbit lights and so on. In addition, many local Lantern Festivals have also added traditional folk performances such as dragon lanterns, lions, stilts, dry boats, yangkoo, and Taiping drums.

China has a vast territory and a long history. Therefore, the customs of the Lantern Festival are not the same throughout the country. Among them, eating Lantern Festival, viewing lanterns, dancing dragons, and dancing lions are several important folk customs of the Lantern Festival. The Lantern Festival is a traditional festival in China, so it has been around the country. The customs in most areas are similar, but the localities still have their own characteristics.
