I was wondering if you have any more info. concerning this Lantern Festival!
It sounds interesting and I was thinking of making a unit on
Festivals/Celebrations from various cultures. This would be an excellent
project for my ceramic classes. Could you tell me more or lead me in the
direction to look for more info? Do you have any other ideas that you would
like to add to this type of unit concerning festivals and celebrations from
other cultures? I'm planning on including the Day of the Dead, Chinese New
Year, etc. Thanks in advance.
