I don't think there's a lot I can tell you about the lantern festival that I haven't already said last year. It's in celebration of Visak Puja (sometimes known as Duichin Day) - the day when Buddha's birth, enlightenment, and death is celebrated. However, I think my photos turned out better this year than last (probably because I took the photos myself instead of giving my camera away so I could help light the lantern). I had great friends to hang out with, and if the weather was a little wet and cold, well, it made us appreciate the torches all the more.
