Every year Taiwan has a Lantern Festival to start a fresh and bright year and at the same time mark the end to the celebration of Chinese New Year.  This year’s venue was chosen to be in TaoYuan.  As always, it outshines the years before.  This website takes you to the official opening of the Lantern Festival.  http://taiwan.net.tw/2016taiwanlantern/Article.aspx?sNo=01000010

According to the Chinese Calendar, this year is the year of the Monkey.  Therefore, the Monkey will be the main theme.  This year, of course, will be spirited, energetic, and vibrant like the character of the monkey.
