The Upcoming Lantern Festival

With the Spring Festival's singing and laughter fading away, we will usher in a warm and poetic festival - the Lantern Festival. This traditional festival with a long history, symbolising reunion, harmony and happiness, will bring us endless joy and warmth on this spring night.

The Lantern Festival, also known as "Shangyuan Festival" or "Lantern Festival", has been one of the important festivals of the Chinese nation since ancient times. According to historical records, as early as in the Han Dynasty, there was a custom of lighting lanterns for rituals on the 15th day of the first month. With the passage of time, the Lantern Festival has gradually evolved into a festival with lanterns, riddles, and Lantern Festival (soup dumplings) as the main content. On this night, people go out of their homes to enjoy lanterns, guess lantern riddles and celebrate the festival together.

The night of the Lantern Festival is full of lights and stars. The streets and alleys are filled with all kinds of lanterns, colourful and beautiful. Some of these lanterns signify good luck, some display historical legends, and some show the charm of modern technology. Under the illumination, the whole city seems to be transformed into a fantastic fairy tale world, which makes people intoxicated.

Guessing lantern riddles is another characteristic activity of the Lantern Festival. People hang riddles under the lanterns and invite visitors to solve them. These riddles are both interesting and philosophical, letting people feel the power of wisdom in entertainment. The process of guessing lantern riddles is not only a competition of wisdom, but also a cultural heritage.

Of course, the most indispensable part of the Lantern Festival is the delicious Yuanxiao (soup dumplings). This dessert made of glutinous rice symbolises reunion and harmony. On the night of the Lantern Festival, families sit together, savour the sweet dumplings, talk about family matters and enjoy the happy time of reunion.
