This spectacular live wallpaper reminds us of a traditional night view of the Lantern Festival. Serene mountains lit with full moon reflect on the silver river, floating lanterns are in the air, and shimmering lanterns dot the water surface.

In Asia, the day surrounding the full moon is considered auspicious for the festival.
In the Indian tradition, a small child would hold a lit lantern in front of the house to ask for blessings of the gods. Once permission was granted, the child would blow out the flame, asking for more light to enter the home. This was the only time that the entire surrounding buildings changed according to the will of the god. In Thailand’s version of the tradition, the child blows out the flame using a paper fan. Other countries have a different version with respect to the paper fan; some communities have been known to burn the paper fans once the festival has begun.
