CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: You need to see Beijing’s ice lanterns” – below is their description.
This is the most incredible Lantern Festival you’ve never heard of!
Lantern Festival marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations and is considered China’s original Valentine’s Day. In the past, young men and women would come out at night to see the beautiful lanterns, and perhaps, even find romance along the way.
