Happy Lantern Festival

It’s the end of the Spring Festival celebrations in China, which culminates in the Lantern Festival. Here in Vietnam, where there is a lot of shared cultural traditions with China, there is no such festival. I’ll just have to remember celebrating it in China.

I don’t remember much of a celebration for this holiday when I lived in China–it was usually followed by the first day back to work. But the decorations were always cool.
