There are real lantern celebrations like the one in Tangled. This one is in Thailand. There are places to buy your own lanterns for a celebration. This would be amazing at a major birthday, wedding, or just because it’s beautiful.
Stepping outside of my generally unknown (and, as LJ will tell you, often somber) music taste and listening to Katy Perry’s Firework on repeat. I cannot resist its magnetism. I know it’s old by radio standards, but still a gem.
