Traditional Craft of Making Rabbit Lanterns

The Lantern Festival occurs on  the 15th day of the Chinese New Year and eating sweet dumplings and dragging the rabbit lanter in the alleys is a warm memory of childhood for many Shanghainese. With the Lantern Festival approaching, let's go looking for authentic traditional rabbit lanterns - you know they are believed to bring good luck.

Hermes, fell in love with paper-cut

Since ancient times, during the Spring Festival Chinese people have visted the temple to worship, burning incense, praying, and this gradually evolved into a form of traditional culture. Red lanterns hung high, sweet and sour sugar-coated hawthorns, as well as fine paper-cutting, all of this young children were exposed to, along with a variety of traditional snacks and other arts and crafts which were redolent of long and deeply held traditions.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Best wishes for a happy Chinese New Year to you all.  We will be taking a short break for a week and we'll see you all after that.  Stay warm!  Back soon.
