About Floating Lantern Ceremony
The Lantern Ceremony is an ancient tradition celebrated in many Asian countries around the world, including China, Thailand and Japan. The Lantern Festival is usually held on a Buddhist holiday on the night of a full moon. Since the worlds first atomic bombings of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 and three short days later Nagasaki on 9 August 1945 this ceremony has taken on a new meaning in Japan. Japans Buddhists believe the souls of their ancestors visit them every year so they put out lanterns to guide the spirits and when the visit ends the lantern is set adrift to light the path back to heaven.
