Cassino, Italy, has become a vibrant canvas of mesmerizing lights and captivating displays as the international "Lanternia" festival opened at the Fairy Tale Forest theme park on Dec 8.

Spanning across 110,000 square meters, "Lanternia" features more than 300 giant lanterns, illuminated by more than 2.5 km of LED lights.

The festival contains six thematic areas: the Kingdom of Christmas, the Animal Kingdom, Fairy Tales from the World, Dreamland, Fantasyland and Colorland. Visitors are treated to a wide array of lanterns varying in sizes, shapes and colors. Ranging from giant lanterns towering nearly 20 meters high to a castle built with lights, these displays offer visitors an immersive journey into the world of Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book and the forest of giant plants.

Crafted with precision and artistry, each lantern represents the rich heritage of lantern-making techniques in China. These lanterns are handcrafted by artisans from Zigong, one of the major producers of Chinese lanterns in Southwest China's Sichuan province.

Enhancing the festival's splendor is its commitment to environmental consciousness and sustainability. According to its organizers, the lanterns are crafted with silk, a material known for its low environmental impact. Moreover, energy-saving LED lights illuminate the displays.

The festival will run through March 10, 2024.

And yet another article on a literary or cultural topic gets shoved off the Front (Home) Page within a day by much more "magnetic" articles about military and political conflict.  F*ck this, I'm going to watch some movies.

I've been on the Internet a long time-- and have watched it change.

It seems that for some strange reason, in recent times there are many, many users who only want to "discuss' politics (and often these are not real discussions but rather merely arguments). Apparently some peoples' main interest in life is to get into arguments...?

What accounts for this...?

I appreciate positive articles about creative people and often read them when I drop by here.  

I will try to at least drop a comment so maybe more people will notice them and enjoy them as well.

Happy movie watching.  I'm going to read so I can sleep.

Actually I did watch movies, the first being one I never saw before - Trouble with the Curve, starring Clint Eastwood, and one I never tire of watching which happened to be on one of the TV channels, Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightly version).  Hope you enjoyed your reading and that it helped you get to sleep.
