Festival lanterns

The closing ceremony began with a large snowflake torch appearing in the sky, echoing the moment from the opening ceremony. Then accompanied by cheerful music, children hung traditional Chinese festive lanterns, lighting up the emblem of the Winter Olympics, which originated from the Chinese character for winter, "dong".

It is tradition that Chinese people hang lanterns and view lanterns during Lantern Festival, which is celebrated on the 15th day of the first lunar month. China just celebrated the festival last week.
