    15th Night of the First Lunar Month(Lantern Festival)

    The 15th night of the first lunar month is the first night of a full moon, hence it is also known as the Yuanxiao Festival. In Chinese, yuan means beginnings and the first. This full-moon night is also known as a Lover's Festival. On this day, the family will come together to eat tanyuan which symbolizes completeness and happiness. It carries the same significance as the reunion dinner. This night is therefore also known as a minor Lunar New Year. It is generally accepted that this night marks the end of the Lunar New Year festivities.

    There are several interesting things to do during Lantern Festival. First Chinese eat Tanyuan, also known as yuanxiao, which are glutinous balls placed in syrup. They symbolize reunion, harmony and sweetness.

    The custom of admiring lanterns on the 15th night of the first lunar month started inthe Yuan Dynasty. Lantern riddles were written on colorful lanterns, which some called Lantern Tigers. So solving lantern riddles was also known as shooting the lantern tiger.
