FengTai Introduction

Fengtai District is a precinct of the municipality of Beijing. It lies to the southwest of the greater urban area of the city. It is 306 square kilometres in area, making it the third-largest precinct in the greater urban part of Beijing, and is home to 1.36 million inhabitants. This precinct is newly urbanized in comparison to those precincts in the old city, and until mid-1980's, it was still a mostly rural area: pig pens and goat pens were common, and major parts of the precinct had no electricity. It was o­nly during the recent rapid economic development that the precinct was urbanized.

Changxindian (population 78 092) and Yungang (population 32 894) street committees of Beijing make up an urban area distinct from Beijing. Examination of the Google Earth image gives an area of 14.5 square kilometers for this area and a population estimate of 130,000. In Qing Dynasty times, Fengtai was where the Imperial Manchu Army had its camps, trained, and held parades o­n festive occasions.

FengTai Festivals

The Festival of Lanterns takes place at the end of the Chinese New Year Celebration, o­n the fifteenth day of the first moon.  Lanterns have been part of Chinese life for centuries so it's not surprising to see a festival of lanterns.  

People usually hang lanterns in the gardens, outside the houses, and o­n the boats.  These lanterns are signposts to guide guests and spirits of ancestors to the Lunar celebration.  After a sumptuous fifteen-day feast, these lanterns light the way for the spirits back to the world beyond.

Silk, paper and plastic lanterns vary in shape and size and are usually multi-colored. Some are in the shapes of butterflies, birds, flowers, and boats.  Other are shaped like dragon, fruit and animal symbols of that year.  The most popular type of lantern is the "horse-racing" o­ne, in which figures or animals rotate around the vertical axis of the lantern.

The special food for the Lantern Festival is Yuen Sin or Tong Yuen.  These are round dumplings made with sticky rice flour.  They can be filled and served as a sweet snack or made plain and cooked in a soup with vegetables, meat and dried shrimp.  The round shape of the dumpling is a symbol of wholeness, completeness and unity.

The Lantern Festival is an occasion for families to get together and for everyone--young, old, rich and poor to have fun.
