  1. I've often wondered about what happens to these....catch fire burn up?????? Living in a tenderbox state, I don't think I will ever see one here but they are beautiful.

  3. Was this part of a Hiroshima remembrance ritual? I know that lanterns floating away in the air or on the water is often part of such events.
