# 正月十五-元宵节-中国情人节 Chinese Valentine's Day Yuan Xiao Jie

Lantern Festival is also Chinese Valentine's Day.

The 15th day of the 1st lunar month is the Chinese Lantern Festival because the first lunar month is called yuan-month and in the ancient times people called night Xiao. The 15th day is the first night to see a full moon. So the day is also called Yuan Xiao Festival in China.

According to the Chinese tradition, at the very beginning of a new year, when there is a bright full moon hanging in the sky, there should be thousands of colorful lanterns hung out for people to appreciate. At this time, people will try to solve the puzzles on the lanterns and eat yuanxiao (glutinous rice ball) and get all their families united in the joyful atmosphere.

Every year on Lantern Festival I went to watch fireworks with my family and friends. Though this year, there was no fireworks in my city. Couples and roses can be found everywhere.
