The history of the solar lantern

Lanterns are first mentioned in written documents by Theopompus, a poet from ancient Greece. In ancient China the earliest lanterns were made from paper or silk with a candle or fireflies inside used to decorate and create atmosphere at festivals and celebrations. Our solar lanterns here at Festive Lights are perfect for a garden party or BBQ in summer, and are much sturdier and safer than those of the past. They are much easier to use than catching a jar full of fireflies too!
