    • I went to UP when I was fifteen. I don’t remember my first lantern parade very much, but I remember the giddy feeling and the party atmosphere that pervaded — and still does — the whole university on that day. The lantern parade is the last day of school, the day for Christmas parties, for gift-giving, and saying temporary goodbyes. It’s also the first day of Christmas vacation, because there are no classes on that day. I left UP for a while, but I couldn’t stay away for long from a university I love. Watching the lantern parade is now a yearly tradition for my family, as I’m sure it is for many UP students and alumni.
