Lanterns light up the night across China

Colored lanterns are hung up on Feb 17, 2016, in Suzhou, Jiangsu province, to greet the upcoming Lantern Festival, which falls on Feb 22 this year. The Lantern Festival falls on the 15th day of the first month of the Chinese lunar calendar. Since the Lantern Festival is held to mark the first full moon of the new lunar year, the Chinese celebrate it by hanging colorful lanterns, playing games, and gathering with friends to eat sweetened rice dumplings.
