The meaning of lantern to kids these days
When is Mid-Autumn Festival? I heard it is around the corner so we brought the kids lantern shopping today. They don’t sell traditional paper lantern anymore do they?
The first lantern that Ayden chose is the type that has sound and wheels and can move on land but I told the Daddy to get them something more ‘traditional’ as in a lantern that will only light up without those annoying sound and movement.
The Daddy gave Ayden a Minion ‘traditional’ lantern. Ayden kept shaking it for sound and movement but nothing happened.
He did not like it and complained to the Daddy that the lantern is not working properly.
He left it on the floor and pestered big bro Ethan to get something more ‘interesting’.
In the end he got this. Boys and wheels can never go wrong. Ayden doesn’t treat this as a lantern. To him this is another vehicle toy.
Wait till I give him the old school paper lantern. I think he’ll faint if I tell him all we do is light it up, hold it and walk around aimlessly. I use to enjoy doing that when I was younger but what I enjoyed more is the burning part. I actually preferred to burn the candles and play with the wax rather than walking around holding the lantern until my arms got sore. What about you?
