The Baron of Pakruojis manor visited the Far East with his family, and he was fascinated by the magical things he had never seen before. The Baron, who loved acquaintanceship with different cultures, had the honor to experience an uncommon celebration of light.
Once a year, all native inhabitants gather all together to get the miraculous energy from the earth, water, and air creatures, and even from giant lanterns that have got the shapes of the dragon – the ruler of fire. But what the Baron liked the most was that Orientals come from the furthest regions together with their families in order to see these remarkable creations. Convivially minded they participate in performances, try the tastiest local meals, and in the time of winter darkness together they create an indescribable oasis of light.
Therefore, the Baron of Pakruojis decided to arrange such celebration this winter in his manor, and to invite everyone who receives this news.
