Product Description

One of the most enduring symbols of China is the humble Chinese paper lantern. Not merely a source of light to the Chinese, these paper lanterns are also imbued with a deep spirituality. Paper lanterns were first used in?China as far back as 200 B.C. They have become a symbol of fortune and long life. Every year, after the New Year celebration, the Chinese have a great lantern festival, where they exchange paper lanterns and carry them in long processions, lighting up the darkness and praying for happiness and success in the coming year. The paper lantern long ago became a favorite decoration of the rich; they would fill their houses with giant decorated lanterns made of paper and silk to show off their wealth and success. Lanterns were also used as a method of communication, especially in times of war. Generals would light the lanterns to send messages and orders to their troops. The paper lantern is especially prized because the light shining through the paper gives a soft glow, much gentler than the harsh light of an open flame. This Fuchsia lantern has replaced the flame of traditional lanterns with an electric light. Powered by three AAA batteries, this lantern will stay lit for up to twelve hours. It makes the perfect accent to your home decorating style. Order some today in time for the summer barbeque season, and create an outdoor oasis that your guests will never forget. This lantern from Asia is also collapsible, making storage of it very easy.
