Lanterns are a significant part of many African cultures and traditions. In Africa, lanterns symbolize joy and unity. Whether celebrating Ramadan, Kwanzaa, or Christmas, lanterns can be seen across the continent of Africa. Children run through streets carrying newly-fashioned clay lanterns. Paper lanterns of all shapes and sizes float through parades. Families circle around lanterns in private rituals within their homes.

Around the world, lanterns are used for a myriad of reasons. Many religions use lanterns to honor Deity and send up prayers. Families use lanterns in memoriam of deceased ancestors and lost love-ones. Lovers use lanterns to celebrate their relationships and renew their promise of love. Individuals use lanterns to celebrate another year of life and to send out their goals/wishes/dreams to the universe.

So whether you are celebrating another journey around the sun, saying goodbye to someone you lost, or simply sending gratitude into the universe, AFRICAN STARLIGHT can help you celebrate with the joy and unity of lanterns, and a bit of African culture!
