Sky lanterns have been a part of celebrations for a very long time but it is only recently that this craze is popular throughout the world. The history of how sky lanterns gained popularity is rather fascinating. It started in Asian cultures and from there became more and more popular throughout other countries in the world. Now sky lanterns are often used to celebrate just about any occasion. Individuals use them for home parties and they are used at festivals.

The beginning of sky lanterns

Sky lanterns were initially used in times of war. The Chinese used them in order to signal troops. The sky lanterns would be set off in the air and the soldiers knew they would come down quickly. There were various signals that they meant. Sometimes it was to show other troops that all is well and other times that something was amiss. It was a good way to alert others quickly regarding status. Chinese sky lanterns, though, became popular with the general populace during peace times.

Popularity of sky lanterns grows to the masses

During times of peace sky lanterns grew in popularity. People started setting off sky lanterns to accent a prayer. They would make a wish then send the sky lantern off to drift into the air. The hope was that as the lantern elevated it would float closer to the heavens, thus making it easier for the gods to hear. Sky lanterns were used during every day activities at first. Commoners working in the field would set one off in hopes of a good crop. Eventually, the lanterns would be used in celebrations for good luck.

Sky lanterns mean good luck and prosperity

Soon sky lanterns started showing up at festivities and celebrations. The setting off of lanterns would bring a family close together. They found peace and serenity in the quiet beauty surrounding the light emanating from the lanterns and they would be uplifted. It was not long until sky lanterns were incorporated into wedding celebrations. Setting off the lanterns was a symbol of hope and joy and well wishes for the couple to get them started in their life together. There are also festivals that use sky lanterns as an integral part of the celebration.

Modern uses for the sky lantern continue the tradition

Today sky lanterns are used in much the same manner as they were traditionally. The difference is that many people around the world are using them and they are adapted for use at pretty much all types of occasions. Private parties use them to celebrate everything from birthdays and anniversaries to simple sporting events. Businesses use them as part of their grand opening celebrations. They are used in weddings and celebrations. People write personalized messages on them and release them in the air for good luck. You can see sky lanterns at concerts and festivals. Wherever someone may have something to celebrate, sky lanterns can be found.

Sky lanterns come in different sizes, shapes and colours. Due to environmental concerns they are now available with 100% biodegradable materials so they do not contribute to waste. Future uses for sky lanterns are limited only by your imagination.
