    The Lantern Festival is celebrated all over the world by Chinese at home and abroad. The Lantern Festival is held on the last day of Chinese New Year, which is 15th day. This year it fell on Feb 22.

    The most important and best part of this festival is seeing all the different lanterns at night, and there are riddles on the lanterns for kids to guess. Going out to view the lanterns is a family affair. As well as lanterns there is also some lion dances and fireworks.

    People usually eat Yuan xiao, which is rice balls with a delicious filling such as black-sesames or red bean paste.

    Below you can see the preparation for the lantern festival in Taiwan. All the decorations are for the Chinese New Year.
