About two weeks after the start of each new year, the ancient Chinese celebrated a holiday named the Lantern Festival. This holiday celebrated the way to a bright and happy future. To celebrate, people would light lanterns and sit out and enjoy the moon. 

Today, people still celebrate the Lantern Festival. Lanterns are hung in home and school and shopping malls and food markets. Children make paper lanterns at school. The idea of the Lantern Festival has remained the same - the light the way to a safe and happy new year.
