Last Day of Chinese New Year: The Lantern & Moon Festival

Traditionally the Chinese celebrate the New Year for fifteen days. The fiftheenth day (today) is the Lantern Festival. There is a full moon in the sky; the first one of the New Year. All lover the streets and squares of towns and villages people hang colorful paper lanterns . Since the markets are held late into the night, the lanterns are lit. During the whole New Year celebration families display a variety of fruits and treats for visitors and a candy box servs as a centerpiece. The traditional candy box is made of wood and is round to symbolize family unity. Some, however, are six-sided because the Chinese believe that 6 is a lucky number. We made seven, each family member making one and made a traditonal display by combining the 7 boxes to form a flower.
