Giant Chinese Lanterns @ Elements (Videos)

Today is the fifteenth day in the Lunar Calendar, the last opportunity to collect red packets from the respect seniors. It is also the Chinese Valentine's Day. In the past (i.e. hundreds of years ago), couples would date on this special day and enjoy the pretty lanterns in the markets.

Lanterns at Elements

Opportunities for lovers to meet was rare in the past; things have certainly changed. Fortunately, some artists have preserved the art to create these beautiful decors for modern lovers to admire.

You have seen photographs of these Chinese Lanterns on the Chinese New Year Day. I loved them so much and have decide to create a video, just to demonstrate the movement of the revolving lanterns.
