History of Lanterns

The tradition of lighting lanterns began centuries ago. Lantern festivals can be traced back to the beginning of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220). On the 15th day of the first month in the Chinese calendar people lit fireworks and lanterns to pray for good harvest and good fortune.
