Lantern festival

6 02 2012

Last day of Chinese New Year celebrations: 15th day started in the early morning with several firecrackers. Not like the 5th day mayhem that I remember very well from last, but also this morning the sounds started around 6am, if not earlier!

Today it is the Lantern festival, (元宵节, Yuánxiāo jié): I do not think I got at home any tāngyuán, 汤圆, but the market close to my home has some frozen versions, with red bean filling. That I like!

More difficult to get or make a lantern: I’m just back from Europe and I do not want to risk to burn down my apartment!! 😉

Anyway, happy Lantern festival everybody!
