Lantern Festival is one of China's important traditional festivals,which can be traced back to more than 2,000 years ago. In the beginning of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), Emperor Hanmingdi was an advocate of Buddhism. He heard that some monks lit lanterns in the temples to show respect to Buddha on the fifteenth day of the first lunar month. Therefore, He ordered that all the temples, households and royal palaces should light lanterns on that evening.This Buddhist etiquette gradually formed a grand festival among people.
