Happy Lantern Festival!
I'ts not a tea or coffee that we're having for today. In those paper cups are called Tang Yuan 湯 圓 or Round Glutinous Rice Soup with Black/Red Beans. The roundness of the glutinous rice symbolize the 15th day of Lunar New Year , the first full moon, and the family wholeness.
I'm feeling bloated after eating those heavy balls, the taste is not much sweet. Today ends the celebration of Chinese New Year, and I'm sharing with you our activities in school. Aside from Glutinous Ball Soup, another tradition is the Lantern Festival. Here in Taipei, lots of lanterns are displayed throughout the city featuring whatever Zodiac Sign for the year. There's one place place here called Ping Xi, famous in
Flying Paper Sky Lantern into the night sky. In school, we made lantern craft that, see what I did below:)
