Posts Tagged ‘mooncake festival’

Lantern festival must be one of the few nights a year that almost all the kids in Singapore are allowed to sleep late. The boys were so happy to go downstairs and play with lanterns, and we found that the gardens and playground were packed with people. But it made for such lovely atmosphere. Kids were running around with lanterns, playing with sparklers, and lighting up long rows of candles. Reminded me of my own childhood.

The boys just had lanterns and candles, but they had a blast and came home to shower by lantern-light :)

Off to play with lanterns!
