For one hundred and fifty years, the Open Championship has been a venue where the world’s best golfers have competed. This year’s tournament is going on as we speak and the old course at St. Andrew’s is ready for the beginning of the finals. The greens are prepped, the players all are ready and the fans are ready to go. For those that cannot get to St. Andrew’s or cannot afford to though, watching the televised play is the best option and celebrating the festivities of the 150th anniversary can be done from home as well by sending up night sky lanterns into the evening sky tonight, before the final day of competition.

Why Water Lanterns?

Floating lanterns from are a great way to add a touch of something different to any celebration. Their use dates back thousands of years and have seen many different purposes over the years. One such use was to celebrate important events and St. Andrew’s 150th anniversary as a championship host is absolutely an important event. For those who are near St. Andrews, launching sky lanterns into the sky around dusk will impress those still at the facility. The fact that St. Andrew’s and golf go back six hundred years is impressive as well and floating lanterns can be launched in celebration of this as well. Our traditional white and traditional coloured lanternswould both be an excellent choice to launch into the night sky as a way to celebrate as well as hope for another six hundred years of golf at this beautifully kept up region of Scotland.

Use Water Lanterns to Support Your Favourite Player

Whether you are for or against popular American golfer Tiger Woods, you can let your neighbours know it by launching sky lanterns. Our white cylindrical lanterns differ from the traditional Chinese lantern style by giving you more space to get your message out. Whether your message is for or against a player, you can write them down on the paper lantern before lighting and sending it up and away. The cylindrical lantern is large enough that your message can be written in a manner that it is visible from quite a ways away.

Traditionally, Chinese lanterns were used in this manner as well; as vessels which prayers were escorted away to the heavens in hopes that those prayers would be read and answered by the deities of ancient China’s culture. Whether your golf prayers are good or bad, sky lanterns are an excellent and serene way of getting those hopes out and into a more public forum. Launching a sky lantern in support of a golfer or in hopes that a golfer does poorly is easier and less expensive than going to St. Andrews and you do not have to be silent as you launch the floating lantern into the air, nor as you watch the game on the television, unlike the experience of being at the Open Championship itself.
