Nan Hua Temple Paper Lantern New Year 2010 into 2011

What a wonderful experience to be a part of and see the 2011 in through the traditions of another culture. Old years night started with a vegetarian meal in the Temple Dining area and then moved on to the Main Temple. Despite the ceaseless rain that came down the event went ahead and as luck would have it the rain stopped just on the stroke of midnight so the fireworks and paper lanterns could be launched. What follows is a few images of the evenings proceedings.
