I find lanterns pretty. But aside from their form, I like lanterns more for their function.
A lantern is a portable lighting device or mounted light fixture used to illuminate broad areas. It may also be used for warning as torches or as general light sources outdoors. Decorative lanterns exist in a wide range of designs. (en.wikipedia.org)
No matter where in the world we are, lanterns must serve its purpose.
“It’s light must so shine before men.”
Shine bright everyone!
