The Lantern Festival Activity - ShanghaiThe fifteenth day of the first lunar month is the Lantern Festival. On that day, family members gather to have a brilliant night, so ancient people also call it Shangyuan Festival, Yuan night or festival of light.
 
According to the Chinese tradition, at the very beginning of a new year, when there is a bright full moon hanging in the sky, there should be thousands of colorful lanterns hung out for people to appreciate.
 
Eating tangyuan and appreciating lanterns are very important customs in the Lantern Festival. (more…)

They can be fresh, such as is common in Vietnam, but are usually fried. You may also know their popular cousin, the egg roll. The main difference is that egg rolls, which are also eaten during the spring festival, is that the wrapper is made out of eggs. (more…)
