The original use of lanterns was primarily as a light source. They were used both indoors and out to provide a shaded light for reading and working.
The protection from wind provided by the decorative silk or paper shade kept the lanterns from going out with the breeze.
In ancient China, they were used to provide light and eventually as aspects of Buddhist worship.
Today, they are used only for decoration and modern forms of celebration and worship.
Lanterns have become a symbol of national pride in China and are used to decorate homes and public places.
