A Tangled Sky Lantern Inspiration

Last night was SUUUUCH a humid night!  While locking up our gate, I couldn’t feel any breeze or gust of wind after noticing that the leaves of the tree across our house didn’t even sway.  Hmm… would have been a perfect night to try sending out a sky lantern.

Say what?

Yup.  A sky lantern.  Ever since I got the chance to watch Disney‘s Tangled, I’ve been hooked with the movie.  I think I’m having a new Disney princess favorite!  Rapunzel’s story seems to grow on me.  So what’s the connection?  For those who saw Tangled, you would know that the sky lantern plays an integral part to the whole story.  Also a touching moment for me too.  For those who haven’t, well I won’t spoil it for you.  But I’m sharing a couple of photos which I googled for you to get the picture.

More sky lanterns

Simply magical right?

I’ve spent half of this day looking for DIY guides and “how-to’s” in creating a sky lantern.  But it requires a couple of tools that are currently not within my reach.  And there are no shops here in my hometown that are currently selling any ready-made sky lanterns.  But then again, I’ve always preferred creating things on my own.  I’ll just set a date for making my own then.

At some point, I came across a couple of videos showing how to make your own sky lantern, and another particular video instruction mentioned that before you send off your sky lantern up in the sky, you write down your wish.  Inspiring.  Something I could do with and/for my friends.  Sky lanterns have been dated 2000 years ago in China.  (Correct me if I’m wrong)  Though they were used in sending out messages during the time of war.   And a festival is annually held in a Taiwan for sky lanterns too a few weeks after Chinese New Year.  Now I want to go there!  Even in some weddings, sky lanterns have become an option in celebrating that joyous day.  Check it out here.

Anyway, I’d like to share a couple more posts inspired by Tangled and sky lanterns.  Here’s one, and another, and one more here.

I think I’m tangled (pun intended!) enough for now.  LOL.

One of my NEW dreams?  Making the perfect sky lantern.  A toast to our dreams and having new ones! 🙂
