Lantern Festival 2015

元宵节,吃汤圆, 一家团团又圆圆.
The 15th day marks the first full moon after the Spring Festival and of the New year. Which is also known as "Yuan Xiao Jie" aka "first night of the full moon" aka "Lantern Festival" day!

We had our reunion dinner and some glutinous rice balls after dinner last night as it is a Chinese customary to eat "Yuan Xiao" which looks like the shape of the full moon haha! 

The children had theirs with longan soup, while the hubs and I had ours with ginger soup! How fortunate it is to be able to be one big family all together, spending the last day of CNY and having an excuse to indulge in desserts! 

I'll never give them up for anything else!
