Chinese people celebrate the Lantern Festival at the first full moon of a Chinese new year. China Light Utrecht is an Chinese light festival that has been organised at the Botanic Gardens in de Uithof/Utrecht University (Official website: click here). I have been attracted by the photos of many friends, and decided to visit this festival with Bart and his parents during this new year holiday. This is also a good chance to let them learn more about Chinese tradition and culture.
