Let's go to the Chinese Lantern Festival! Just a It is such a great opportunity to show off the beauty and art of the Chinese culture. Every year, the company sends workers to build these works of art similar to ones that they craft for the Chinese New Year. Because they are handcrafted, they are never the same, except the dragon who rests upon Symphony Lake - he was a careful redo from last year, actually 2019, the last year they held it. Due to COVID, it was cancelled last year. But, he is back! You must agree, it is quite the piece of work. I hope they do him again next year! I will say that you never know what to expect!! It is always a surprise!
I recently visited the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina. I was delighted that my visit would coincide with the Chinese Lantern Festival. Again. It is located right on the outskirts, in the town of Cary.
More than 2,500 lanterns create the displays of the Chinese Lantern Festival, To me, it showcases the beauty and artistry of the Chinese culture, also displaying an migling of old world traditions with a touch of westernization. This is definitely a authentic multi-cultural experience. It is fun to try to spot the different elements of it.
What an amazing display of color and artistry. This is one of my favorite pieces.
The festival will run from November 19th, 2021, to January 9th, 2022, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. each evening. From Thursday to Sunday evenings, the Twilight Ticket Experience will get you in at 4:30 p.m.
The Panda Express. Pandas are a big part of the Chinese culture. The Panda symbolizes strength, along with peace and friendship. Their gentle temperament earned them this symbol.
According to China's various folk customs, people get together on the night of the Lantern Festival to celebrate with different activities. ... The most important and prevalent customs are enjoying lanterns, guessing lantern riddles, eating tangyuan, and lion dances. It is the truth. Google told me so.
Have you ever seen such beautiful lanterns? The hundreds of lanterns have more than 150,000 LED lights. The lanterns light up the path from the parking lot into the entrance of the park. You go sooooo slow it seems like a mile!! It's not! Once you do it, you want to turn around and do it again.
. I keep saying that less will be more this year. More than I expect. :) I love this season of joy, it is all about family and friends. In keeping with the Christmas Countdown, I give you one seasonal picture and the day count! There are 26 days 00 hours 03 minutes and 21 seconds.
To the Chinese, butterflies symbolize freedom, conjugal love, beauty, and soul but at the same time death, the vulnerability of life, female vanity, and transient joy. Its metamorphosis is the extrication from flesh to the soul and rises from the heavy, ugly reality to the light and beautiful spiritual world. source

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.
It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.
The Naming of Cats
The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
