Sky Lanterns in Coventry

Now you may ask what a Sky Lantern is, what is the purpose of a Sky Lantern is and why do people use them.

Sky Lanterns are basically mini hot air balloons. They are a lantern with a paper shell and wire frame that holds a fuel source. When the fuel source is lit, the lantern fills with air and floats into the sky.

According to historian Joseph Needham, the Chinese experimented with small hot air balloons for transporting messages during civil unrest as the Lanterns would fly over the enemy into the hands of the awaiting generals. Used in Asia to bring good luck.

Now they are used more commonly for special events such as weddings or remembrance or even just to make a wish and launch it in the air.

You can either write on the lantern itself or even attach a little note to the frame.

Sky lanterns are purchased more and more in Coventry around New Years, with people often wanting to make their New Year wishes or New Year resolutions on the and setting them off, watching them slowly rise into the air and drift off. The excitement also comes in not knowing where they will end up or who maybe reading your special thoughts and feelings.
