Wish Lanterns ( Launch: weekly photo challenge )

For everyone who was able to see the movie Tangled and was fascinated by those enchanting sky lanterns in the sky, look no further but in Cebu City in the Philippines.

These sky lanterns are also known as Wish Lanterns and are gathered up into the heavens for every meaningful event in one’s life, usually in weddings and to start the New Year.

Biodegradable and made into perfection, these lights are a sight to behold!

Remember the scene from Tangled? Great sights…can’t wait to watch these lanterns first hand!
