England’s win yesterday against Germany in women’s hockey in their bid for the Champions Trophy is certainly worth celebrating, even though the win is buried pages deep in papers and not featured on the main page of popular news sites. Their win helps elevate them to second place in the tournament and will hopefully help keep them running into their game tomorrow with China. With wins like this going for the ladies of English hockey, their chances to win the Champions Trophy are looking great and what better way to celebrate yesterday’s victory and to send wishes of a strong win tomorrow than some Chinese Hanging Lanterns sent to the heavens with those sentiments?

Traditional Sky Lantern Uses in a Modern Age

Traditionally, sky lanterns were often used in ancient China as part of battle communication as well as a way to send up prayers to the ancient Chinese deities. In the age we live in, Chinese lanterns have taken on more uses, from part of wedding celebrations to simply a fun way to spend an evening; however, the idea of supporting a sports team with sky lanterns is one that many have done and many will continue to do so as well. The power of sky lanterns may not be as much as the ancient Chinese believed they had but well wishes to a sports team, in this case the hosting English ladies hockey team, are not to be ignored either. Sending the lanterns into the sky has its own serene beauty that cannot be ignored as well and can be the perfect way to end an exciting day watching hockey or any other sport.

Sky Lanterns and Tomorrow’s Match

Our traditional white sky lanterns or eco lanterns would both be a great choice to help send your well wishes to the English team into the evening sky tonight or even in the morning hours leading up to the match. These lanterns are a perfect medium for well wishes, providing a good sizes surface of paper to write with permanent marker what you hope will happen or simply a message to support the English team. Imagine sending off a batch of sky lanterns over the field itself prior to the game. The irony of using Chinese lanterns as a way to wish the opponent of China a good match is too perfect to pass up!

For those looking for lanterns to celebrate yesterday’s win or tomorrow’s hopeful victory, has a huge selection of lanterns available. All of our lanterns are biodegradable and our Eco lanterns are designed to degrade much quicker than the traditional sky lanterns available on our site. In both traditional and eco models, various colours are available for purchase and with the selection the right combination of colours can easily be had for any event. Chinese Hanging Lanterns can be written on with permanent marker or even painted on with acrylic paints, provided they are allowed to dry before launch.
