Chinese Red Lanterns

FullSizeRender

Countless Chinese red lanterns are hung, throughout the world, to welcome in and to celebrate the Lunar New Year of the Goat.

Each red lantern represents a hope. Each red lantern symbolizes a dream. Hopes and dreams are what we all wish for at the eve of a brand new cycle. We pray for prosperity and good health. We long for safety and peace. Although not every hope and dream of ours can come into fruition; however, the act of wishing, praying, and longing is powerful enough to ensure us a steady yet adventurous roller coaster ride in the year of the goat.
