I have always wanted to go to the lantern festivals in South East Asia
But then I decided to see if I could bring the lantern festival to us - to my friends here - for New Years Eve.
So I did some research, and found out that you could by the sky lanterns here.
When my friends and I decided to celebrate the new year near a frozen lake in Vermont, I decided to bring along a bunch of sky lanterns.

And then walked to the lake, and released them into the sky.
