Flame-lit Paper Lanterns
Flame-lit lanterns are paper lanterns that use a candle to provide light. They are usually found outside, but sometimes they are found inside. They often find homes in gardens or in backyards where people gather. They provide excellent sources of light for night time dinners. These lanterns pose more of a safety risk than do electrically-lit lanterns because of their open flame. So, extra caution must be taken to place the lanterns out of easy reach; it is best to put them away to avoid accidentally hitting them, consequently catching the paper on fire. These are the most traditional types of paper lanterns, as they were around long before electricity.
