Perhaps the most popular of all the kings and queens that have overseen England and the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth I is still celebrated for the manner in which she ruled, not to mention her overseeing taking down the Spanish Armada in 1588. During her reign, British ships travelled the globe establishing trade routes around the world. It is likely that in their travels, sky lanterns were brought back as a curious invention from what was essentially another world at that time. With one of England’s favourite queens birthday being today, celebrate with a launch of sky lanterns and think about how much England has changed since her reign.

Traditional Water Lanterns Celebrate any Event

For Queen Elizabeth I’s birthday or any other royal event, traditional floating lanterns are not only a great choice for a way to celebrate they are actually very appropriate. In ancient China, Chinese Hanging Lanterns were used as a way to send prayers to the heavens, year round. At certain times of the year, those prayers may be directed towards successful crops or a mild winter season but at other times, the prayers would be directed toward nobility being successful as well. From a local village’s nobleman to the princes, princesses, kings and queens, well wishes were sent up in hopes for their prosperity because if they were prosperous all those who were loyal subjects would be as well. In celebrating with Chinese lanterns today, both ancestors and nobility are being acknowledged as they gracefully float into the evening sky.

Start a New Tradition with Sky Lanterns

Using sky lanterns to celebrate historical events is a fairly new concept but also one that many people would happily be willing to consider. As a way to educate people, sky lanterns offer a unique viewing audience. While most people, young and old alike, are aware of Queen Elizabeth I in this country, some may have not been paying attention the day in History class when her birth date was or her contributions to the England we know today. Launching sky lanterns adorned with dates and short facts about Queen Elizabeth I can be viewed by everyone who sees the Chinese Hanging Lanterns floating away. Celebrating lesser known accomplishments of her life can be done this way or for any other historical figure.’s Commitment
