Lantern Festival falls on February 14 this year. In ancient times, it was the only day that girls were allowed to leave their home to see the outside world, and even go out on a date with their "Mr. Right". This year the Chinese festival coincides with Valentine's Day, making it an extra special day for dating. Here are some of the top lantern shows around China.
