(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Children nowadays are lucky with countless off the shelf lanterns spoil for choice. My first lantern was a self-made Milo can lantern like this one.

One of the famous lantern festival story is Han rebellion against Mongolian regime in China by inserting uprising message written in a piece of paper into mooncakes. Han Chinese uprising on 15th August in the Chinese lunar calendar had ousted Yuan Empire from their homeland.

The story of lantern festival’s origin is quite long, please read it from Wikipedia.
