孔明燈又叫天燈 ， 相傳是由三國時的諸葛孔明所發明 。 當年，諸葛孔明被司馬懿圍困於平陽，無法派兵出城求救。孔明算準風向 ， 製成會飄浮的紙燈籠 ， 繫着求救的訊息，其後果然脫險，於是後世就叫這種燈做孔明燈。
底座點火時，燃着油布條，燈內充滿受熱的空氣。熱空氣往上升 ， 會把整個孔明燈徐徐帶起，遠看就像空中飄着的一個大火球。
People enjoy the crowds and fireworks, even if
they don't really understand the traditions very deeply.
There is some confusion about what the holiday means and why
the date changes every year, but overall, people are
intrigued by it
While the old generations still go through all of the rituals of cleaning and decorating the home, preparing delicious food, visiting relatives and worshiping ancestors, the young siblings only visit their parents for the Chinese New Year Eve dinner.
Old people think the Spring Festival means new clothes, firecrackers and delicious 'niangao' New Year cakes made of sticky rice, but the young generation take it as an opportunity to relax or travel. Some young people don't celebrate with as many colorful decorations as before, but that's not a way to measure how important a holiday is. Chinese are doing well in economy and life is getting better but stressful. They need the psychological comfort of a family reunion during traditional festivals.
