  4. Fascinating. los Angeles is having a lantern festival next weekend. I wasn’t going to pay any attention to it but now, after seeing these, I might.

  6. We have no Chinese community of sufficient numbers to justify creating a Chinese lantern festival here but how I regret it! The lion and zebras are fantastic, I’d love to see something similar here!
