Did you know...?
The original use of lanterns was primarily as a light source in the house or the doorway, or for the worship in Buddhist temples. The decorative silk or paper shade kept the flames fom going out with breeze and wind. Although the most common Chinese lanterns are red, oval shaped, they also come in square, rectangle, and other shapes.
In modern times when there is no longer practical need for lanterns, they have become ornamental and a cultural symbol. The streets are decorated and illuminated with big-sized red lanterns during Chinese festivals.
Small-sized red lanterns, like this product, are mainly for interior decoration. They are the must-have just like the Christmas tree bauble/balls.
