Around the lunar New Year, these paper balloons, the largest of which can even be as tall as 12 meters, rise based on the principle of a hot air balloon. Over 100 paper balloons color the winter night sky. The historical industries in this area are rice growing and work on the mountains, so in the past many people prayed for a good harvest or sound health, but recently individual wishes for the year, such as peace and prosperity in the household and success in school, have been entrusted to the paper balloons, which are launched into the winter night sky to carry their words to the heavens.
