As early as the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 25), it had become a festival of great cultural significance. The Lantern Festival falls on the 15th day of the 1st lunar month, which will be late February or early March in the Gregorian calendar.

In 2015, the Lantern Festival falls on March 5th. Don't miss it !
