Lantern Festival 2016

Tomorrow is the Lantern Festival. That's the last day of the New Year. It's not a public holiday, but it's a party day.

The main Lantern Festival activity is lighting paper lanterns and letting them float away into the sky. It can really be something to watch. If you look in the right place at the right time, you can see thousands of lanterns floating off to wherever they go. They're supposed to go out to the ocean and become Neptune's problem when they land, but sometimes they land someplace that people have to clean.

I have no special plans this year. I've participated in lighting lanterns in the past, but it's a pretty minor holiday. Nobody really takes it too seriously around here.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
