What Is The Lantern Festival


    

Today we answer your questions about the Chinese Lantern Festival, including what it is, why it is taking place and when it is taking place.

    

One of the most photographed light festivals is the Loy Krathong Lantern Festival, which is celebrated in Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia. Also known as Hong Kong Lantern Festival, the Lantern Festival for Chinese New Year, takes place every year at the end of January and beginning of February in the city of Guangzhou in Guangdong province. From the floating lanterns in Shanghai to the lantern festivals in Beijing and Shanghai, there are six brilliant lantern festivals held annually around the world. The Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival was held in Xi'an, Jiangsu Province from January 1st to March 31st, 2012.

    

The Lantern Festival is to mark the return of spring and symbolize the family gathering. One of the most popular lantern festivals in China, where lanterns are the focus of the celebrations, is the Spring Lantern Festival, which takes place from 1 January to 31 March 2012 in the city of Guangzhou in Guangdong province.

    

Taiwan's Lantern Festival also lasts a few weeks, so you have a relatively large window to enjoy the festival. During this festival there is an extra hour between the beginning and end of the day and between 12 and 17 hours about three hours.

    

It is a good idea to follow the Taiwan Lantern Festival website for more information about the holiday season. If you happen to be in China for the Lantern Festival, you should take the time to enjoy the celebration. Since the Lantern Festival is part of the Spring Festival, it can be a good opportunity to make time for you and your family. 

    

The 2021 Chinese New Year begins on February 12, and the festival is called the Lantern Festival. It starts on the first day of the New Year, while the Chinese New Year begins on February 4th, which means it lasts until the end of February. 

    

The date and location of the Lantern Festival in Taipei are based on the Chinese New Year and are usually held in February or March. The Lantern Festival is celebrated in Taiwan every year, although it usually falls sometime between February and early March, but it is usually the first day of February of the year.

    

Bright lanterns illuminate the winter eclipse, and everyone takes to the streets to celebrate. The festivities culminate when the Lantern Festival falls on the last day of the Chinese New Year, usually the first day in February or March. It is observed in Taipei and other parts of Taiwan, such as Guangdong, Hainan, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

    

Regardless of how you celebrate the Lantern Festival, consider this date a joyful commemoration. Also known as Lunar New Year's Day, Chinese New Year or the first day of the New Year, this time the day of the honoured custom falls on the 15th day of each first month. The day after the solar eclipse, on February 14, 2016, it falls in Hong Kong and Macau.

    

The China guide explains the Chinese Lantern Festival, also known as Yuan Xiao Festival. It is called Yuanxiao Festival and almost every family eats Tung Ywen (soup round), also called YuanXiao, when it is eaten during the Lantern Festival. Another food is stuffed rice balls called Yuanx Xiao (Tang Yuan), which are eaten by almost all families on this day.

    

During the Lantern Festival there are a variety of traditions and activities, from lighting lanterns to eating rice balls and dancing.

    

A well-known lantern festival for the people of China is the Chinese Harvest Festival, which celebrates the bringing together of families. The Chinese festival is known as the Lantern Festival because lighting the lanterns, or "Deng Shui Deng" in Chinese, on the first day of the Chinese New Year is one of the main attractions of this special day. While this type of lantern is certainly ubiquitous during this time of the Chinese New Year, the lanterns and lanterns used at the Lantern Festival are very different. At some point in history, during the Chinese Lantern Festival, people started writing messages on lanterns and lighting them.

    

According to one explanation, this is closely related to Buddhism, and the story used to explain the origin of the Lantern Festival has to do with the Jade Emperor. During the Qixi festival, which is celebrated on the first day of the Chinese New Year (or, if you like, the second day), there is a relaxation of the rules, with rumors of riots.

    

The most popular story is that the Lantern Festival is celebrated on the birthday of the Daoist god of fortune, Tianguan. The Khan says that it is a celebration of his birthday, not the birth of a new moon, but of the first full moon. Qixi, sometimes called Spring Lantern Festival, is also celebrated when the first full moon is visible, and also during the Chinese New Year.
