A single woman can be seen sending up her lantern with a wish to say goodbye to her single life.
An event themed “Light up destiny stars, say goodbye to single life” was held in Shanghai on Monday evening and attracted about one hundred single men and women who sent lanterns flying in the air for hope of finding love, NetEase reported.
The singles were seen launching Kongming lanterns into the sky as a way to bid goodbye to their single life.
Meanwhile, a ban on such lanterns was just put into force over the weekend in Beijing, according to Xinhua, after one of the burning lanterns fell on a telegraph poll and lit the electric wires on fire.
Send your lanterns into flight while you can, Shanghai singles.
