Someone was looking for these the other day - we used them at New Year - but it might be worth putting away for next year - or Chinese New Year ?

10 pack Was £24.99 now £16.99

99p postage at the moment

Ever felt like fireworks have just got a bit same-old? These lanterns have an air of elegance and grace that no Roman Candle could possibly begin to match. Fireworks whilst fun in their own way, are very expensive, very short-lived, and are only meant to come out once a year. In contrast these 'Flying Lantern' thingies make for a long-lasting, grace filled and beautiful 'Ahhhhhhhh' moment. They're basically a large paper (fireproof) lantern with a wick suspended beneath them. You light the wick (outside of course), and in about thirty seconds they are filled with hot air from the flame and are ready to sail majestically up to 1000 feet into the night sky. Originally thought up by the Chinese over 2000 years ago as a warning signal (due to their ability to be seen for miles), paper lanterns gradually became a part of festival and ceremonial practices across the Far East. Well now we can enjoy them too, and whether you're planning on using them for a wedding, a party, or just because they're simply beautiful, there's no doubt they'll bring a certain spark to any event. Who knows where they may end up?

you write a wish on the paper, then light the candle and let it go. It will fly up in the air and take your wish to the skies. And will wake up the local police for UFOs reports.

Having said that, I was looking for some good offers on those, so ordered some, thanks, hot for me!

After all I'm a LGM

Cheaper at Play.com. £15.99 for 10 and free postage.

Its all about choice, some people like noisy fireworks, but we got these last year and the kids liked them way more than expensive fireworks.

Cold, these are available in Pound World, 99p shop and the works. Sorry

Set your neighbours garden on fire then run away: I am pleased I don't live next door to you!

I was going to say a responsible person would rush to put out the fire, but actually a responsible person would not use these things in the first place.
