Together With Zhang and Jiang, Share the Lantern Festival in Jimen

同 张 将 蓟 门 看 灯
异 俗 非 乡 俗
新 年 改 故 年。
蓟 门 看 火 树
疑 是 烛 龙 然。
Tong Zhang Jiang Ji Men Kan Deng

Yi su fei xiang su
Xin nian gai gu nian.
Ji men kan huo shu
Yi shi zhu long ran.

 

Together With Zhang and Jiang, Share the Lantern Festival in Jimen

Different customs from the people in my hometown
This New Year changed from those in former years.
In Jimen, see the fire-illuminated trees
Maybe these candles are like a dragon.

 

Notes:

Jimen: Located in Hebei Province

Lantern Festival : Celebrated on the fifteenth day after the lunar New Year. The first full moon of the lunar year marks the end of the New Year celebrations.
