Happy Lantern Festival !
Lantern Festival always falls on the fifteenth day of the first month in Chinese lunar calendar (usually between January and February). According to Chinese tradition, on this day the Spring Festival comes to the end and the moon presents its first full look in a new year, thus it is considered as a joyous festival of reunion.
