Fun At The Laternenfest

I had a blast at the Laternenfest last Tuesday evening at my Kindergarten. It was so exciting because it was my first time to join a big event in the Kindergarten. It was the lantern festival and here in Germany, it is celebrated around this time of the year in remembrance of St. Martin and his generous deed.

Many little children like me look forward to this festival because we get to see lots of wonderful handmade lanterns all being lit up in the evening. I had a lot of fun and I was so happy because both my Mommy and Daddy were there. Even Tita Cha, a good friend of ours, came and brought her lantern with her.

We had a small procession around the neighborhood where the Kindergarten was located. We sang songs while walking and then made a few stops along the way. It was a cold evening but we didn't seem to mind. The little heat from our lanterns and the singing and the laughter I shared with my friends were enough to keep us going. Some children lost their lanterns because they caught fire and they cried. I am glad mine didn't go into flames, thanks to Mommy who made sure that I was holding it properly.

I can't wait for the next year's lantern festival. I know that Mommy knows better what to do next time with my lantern so that she wouldn't have to worry to much about me or my lantern getting burned.
