Sky lanterns are the latest craze to hit the country. The use of these Chinese Chinese Hanging Lanterns is not a new one. In fact, using sky lanterns is steeped in tradition going back to ancient times in China. Traditionally, these were used to send up prayers to the heavens. It evolved from there to be a means of honouring a couple at a wedding ceremony. Today the uses for sky lanterns are limited only by your imagination. They are often incorporated into public celebrations and festivals as well as for private ceremonies such as birthdays and anniversaries. But if you are not personalizing your lanterns you are missing out on half the fun.

Sky lanterns for good luck and well wishes

In keeping with the traditions from many years ago, Chinese Hanging Lanterns can be launched as a way to deliver a prayer, wish for good luck or well wishes. But, it can be more effective, not to mention more fun, if you personalize it first. All you need is a sharpie marking such as the one found at for your convenience. You can use any type of paper lantern such as the heart shaped sky lanterns such as or the white cylindrical lanterns as found at Unwrap the sky lanterns and lay it out. Then, before attaching the fuel cell and lighting it you can write a special message, prayer or wish on the paper lantern. After this is done you can take it outside, attach the fuel cell, light it and launch it. As it drifts into the sky your thoughts will be carried to the heavens. This is a great way to keep with the traditions of the ancient people who started using the Chinese lanterns.
