Lantern Festival - Yee Peng

Today the Chinese celebrate the Lantern Festival and marks the end of the Chinese New Year Celebrations.

Floating Lanterns are released into the sky. This symbolizes the release of ills and bad luck of the previous years. It is believed that when you do this act of releasing the lanterns into the sky, and if you make a wish it will come true, and there is a catch to it - if you make that wish, make sure you do good deeds the following year!

It is one of the most celebrated occasions around the world. Wishing all a great year ahead and may only good and peace thrive in this world of ours!
