Happy Chinese New Year of the Rabbit 2011

During the Chinese mid-Autumn festival when the Moon is usually at its best, Chinese children still carry lit paper lanterns made in the form of a Rabbit, and climb the hills to look at the Moon and admire the Moon Hare.
Below are some pictures found on the net:
