Beautiful Sight on a Lantern Festival

Lantern Festival is this Sunday, Feb.28. The Lantern Festival signals the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations and it is time to face the year with good intentions.

In Taiwan, people write prayers on their lanterns, wishing for good health, love and happiness. Then they let the paper lanterns fly off into the night sky.

Here is a video taken during the Lantern Festival of 2007 in Pingshi, Taiwan by Diagonal View UK.

It's too beautiful to not share!

Love it!
I was born and raised in Taiwan but have never witnessed such a sight...shame!
I wonder when and where they all fell?

Yes, I was wondering about that too... but then these are made of paper so I'm hoping for a better ending, compared to balloons.
