Spring festival celebrations are coming to an end in China.

Monday marks the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, and it's on this day that the Lantern Festival is celebrated. It's also known as Yuanxiao Festival or Shangyuan Festival.

Sweet dumplings, called Tangyuan in southern China and Yuanxiao in northern China, are eaten on this day. They're usually served with dessert soup.

Children go out at night to temples carrying paper lanterns and solve riddles on the lanterns.

The day is a time when families gather together. It officially ends the Chinese New Year celebrations.
