Lantern Festival observed on the first full moon in a lunar year. This day is also the 15th day of Chinese New Year. In addition, there are many different kinds and sizes of lanters hanged in front of the temples. Therefore, this day is a happy and beautiful day. In tradition, people will eat tang yuan or yuan xiao at this day. This is very nice day.
