When lighting a bag on fire what could go wrong? Surprisingly, Sky Lanterns are very safe. There's a whole festival for Sky Lanterns in Taiwan each year. It's a pretty romantic thing to do when the mood strikes you.

Implications - The featured video shows these glowing Sky Lanterns getting sent up into the air and filling the night sky with a beautiful glow. The Sky Lanterns are made out of flame-resistant bags so that they won't be able to start a fire. Some people write messages on the lanterns before they are sent up into the air and out of sight. It certainly would be something amazing to see in person! Stats for Sky Lanterns Trending: Older & Warm
