 As one of China's traditional festivals, the Lantern Festival or the Spring Festival is a festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunar calendar.

 Some legends associate the Lantern Festival with the ancient idea of climate, Taoism, and Buddhism. 

 It indicates that people worshipped the moon in ancient times for they welcomed the first full moon of the lunar new year on that night.

 To celebrate the festival, people use lanterns as decorations and spend the occasion joyfully.

 It also marks the final day of the traditional Chinese New Year celebrations.
