Lighting Our World: A Year of Celebrations
by Catherine Rondina (Author) and Jacqui Oakley (Illustrator)
Booktalk: Throughout the year and around the globe, people use light — candles, bonfires, lanterns and fireworks — to celebrate special occasions. (This Friday it will be Chinese New Year.)
Chinese New Year (China)
At the end of the celebration we have a beautiful lantern festival, which also includes a giant paper dragon. This tradition is more than two thousand years old. Red lanterns are lit and hung everywhere for good luck. Fireworks explode in the night, making loud noises that scare evil spirits away.
