Spring Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival that is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month
, and the last day of Chinese New Year. It also means the Chinese equivalent of Valentine's Day.
It's also a time when folks eat sweet sticky dumplings called "tong yuen" (湯圓), they are made of glutinous rice flour and is rolled up into a ball, it has fillings like peanut, sesame or red bean (the ones I've ate anyway :-)). They are boil in water (with ginger and rock sugar), and are super satisfyingly filling, especially as a dessert.
