It is time for the 'Pretty Palettes" September 2015 reveal!    Erin Prais-Hintzhas picked the  Lotus Lantern Festival as our inspiration for this month.  She reports that "The Lotus Lantern Festival, Yeon Deung Hoe (연등회), or the “Feast of Lanterns,” is celebrated on the eighth day of the fourth lunar month (late April or early May of the Roman calendar), hundreds of thousands of candlelit paper lanterns are raised throughout the country to commemorate the Buddha’s birthday. The party lasts for about 2 weeks culminating in a street celebration featuring more than 100,000 brightly colored lanterns strung along Seoul’s streets, on both sides of the Hangang River, transforming the city into a glittering jewel."
