Different Types of Chinese Paper Lanterns
A lighting source wrapped around with a paper and you have got a paper lantern for yourself. These paper lanterns have been used by ancient Chinese, Japanese and Koreans for a number of decorative, spiritual, and lighting purposes. The concept of paper lanterns was brought to this world by Chinese. So, according to Chinese culture paper lanterns are divided into five main categories.
Today, paper lanterns are not just limited to white paper with a candle in it. They come in different shapes and sizes, and are made from different kind of papers for variety of uses. A bag housing a candle in it is the simplest kind that you can find. It is often used during Halloween as it creates a spooky feel. However, a paper lantern made from white paper bag defines peace and is largely used during Christmas or any other festive event.
Nowadays, you can also find electrically lit paper lanterns. They are made with a cord, a bulb and socket. The cord comes in varied length and can be extended as well depending upon individual needs. The most common wattage used in these electrical paper lanterns are sixty, whereas you can also find higher ones as well. Even you can find paper lanterns with bulb of hundreds watts that are used in film production and are commonly known as "Chinaballs."
Flame-lit lanterns are the next type of paper lantern. These candles are largely used in celebration or evening dinner parties as they provide a peaceful, dim light that works best with the nighttime dinner environment. They also look awesome in places like backyard or outdoor gardens. These lanterns are often used in isolation from surrounding things in order to avoid the risk of fire. Especially, if children are around it is advisable to use these lanterns at a certain height. These lanterns are the most ancient form of paper lanterns.
Not all paper lanterns are made from white paper. You can easily find a large number of paper lanterns of different colors. Some paper lanterns also have different patterns drawn on them. The most common designs are Oriental that have inscription of Chinese characters on it. You can also find paper lanterns in different shapes and sizes, such as star shape or shape of any animal, flowers and many more. Battery operated paper lanterns are one of the latest type of paper lanterns that do not have any wiring or risk of fire associated with it. Many people even prefer making their own paper lanterns according to their preferences.
