As I sit here writing this with my laptop on my lap, I find myself reminiscing about my early teenage years in the Philippines. Struck by the vivid memories of a young me, navigating the complexities of my dual heritage, with roots deeply intertwined and very much wrapped in both the Filipino and British cultures.

In the heart of traditional Chinese culture lies a celebration steeped in history, mysticism, and a love of light. The Chinese Lantern Festival, also known as the Yuan Xiao Festival, marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations.
The festival dates back over two thousand years and has its roots in Taoist beliefs. According to legend, a mythical beast known as the “Nian” terrorized villages during the New Year, causing widespread destruction. The villagers learned that the Nian was afraid of the color red and loud noises, and so they began to decorate their homes with red lanterns and set off firecrackers to scare it away. Over time, this practice evolved into the Chinese Lantern Festival as we know it today.
