The Chinese tradition is, that on the 15th day of the Lunar New Year (Chinese New year) -tomorrow, everyone makes lanterns that they then take out in the moonlight to celebrate the end of the beginning. The New Year is upon us, let us make it the best year yet. The light of our lanterns offers promise of a light filled year!
