The Lantern Festival

The Lantern Festival or Yuanxiao will be celebrated on the final, or fifteenth day in the Traditional Chinese New Year Calendar of Events.

This marks the end of Chinese New Year celebrations with a party under the full moon. Traditionally chinese make paper lanterns to illuminate and march under the full moon. Sometimes there are competitions to see who has the most beautifully decorated lantern.
