Mid-Autumn Festival Lanterns  

On the 15th and 16th days of the 8th lunar month, families will go out after dinner with their lanterns to do moon gazing. Traditional ones are made of paper. Round fan fold ones are the basic ones while fruit and animal shaped lanterns like rabbit, fish, butterfly and star fruit shaped ones are for children.
