Today is China's traditional holiday, the Lantern Festival. Nowadays in cities, there are fewer activities to celebrate. At least for me, it seems that I have never attended any activities related to the lantern festival or learned about activities related to lantern festivals. However, young people may not be in the same situation as mine. When I was a child living in the countryside, the lantern festival brought me a lot of beautiful memories. When lantern festival comes, it means that Chinese New Year's is completely gone, so we usually celebrate it grandly. We bought various fireworks, firecrackers and colorful lanterns. During the lantern festival night, we set off fireworks and firecrackers, and carried a lantern to go with little fellows around the whole village to have fun. The most interesting thing during the festival in my memory is that you always see someone's lanterns catch fire and burn out. You know what? It's because our lanterns then were all made of paper and its core was a burning candle, so those lanterns were really easy to catch fire. The Chinese lantern festival is on the lunar January 15 th. All the activities include setting off fireworks, enjoying various lanterns, solving lantern riddles and eating rice balls and so on, and all these activities are launched at night.
