The Lantern Festival

Today is the Lantern Festival, the last day of the Chinese New Year. On this day you can see lanterns of all shapes, sizes and colors. You can even light a flying lantern and send it up into the night sky. I love this festival because the sky is full of lights which drift slowly through the air. I love to watch the river of lights high above me, slowly flowing around all of those impressive skyscrapers. It is an impressive and peaceful sight.

During the Lantern Festival people also eat a special dessert, a sweet soup that has small, colorful balls. The balls are made of glutinous rice flour and have a variety of delicious fillings. These are eaten because their name sounds similar to reunion and the Chinese consider family and friends to be very important.

Today is also the last day for you to submit any products inspired by the Chinese New Year. Hurry! All participants will get a chance to receive a goodie box from the Blog Kitchen. Thanks for participating!
