Chinese Lantern Festival
29 May, 2018
Celebrated on the 15th day of the first Chinese lunar month, the Lantern Festival traditionally marks the end of the Chinese New Year Spring Festival period. Lanterns are the main focus and attraction of the festival. Lanterns of various shapes and sizes (traditional globes, fish, dragons, goats etc.) can be seen everywhere; in households, shopping malls, parks, and streets. On this day, Chinese people also go out to look at the moon, send up flying lanterns, fly bright drones and enjoy a special meal with family and friends in parks and natural surrounds. Recently at our Point Cook Prep Chinese classroom, children learnt to make Chinese lanterns and played a lantern riddles game. They had a lot of fun creating their lanterns, whilst learning about Chinese culture and traditions. The big smiles on their faces say it all!
