Every year, we only allow the children to play lanterns on the 1st day until 15th day of 8th month in Chinese Lunar Calendar. They can only have fun with candles and lanterns for about 2 weeks time. This time was a bit better, as the first day fell on Raya eve. So my children had started to play lanterns during the Raya holidays.
First time was on Raya eve. They played at outside of our house.
Second time was on first day of Hari Raya. They played at Lake Garden.
4th and 5th time was at my PIL's house. No pic was taken for that 2 days.April and May were not so keen on holding the lantern, they enjoyed to hold the candle below a cardboard more.
