Releasing a sky lantern into the night can signify many things—a wish, an honorary gesture, or, in the case of the "Proceed 2 Party" sky lantern, a fun night ahead. SkyLantern.com carries lanterns for almost any occasion, from festive birthdays to Christmas. Some are emblazoned with graphics, including the American flag or a grinning Halloween pumpkin. Some, such as the Shooting Star lanterns, have no pictures, but leave twinkling sparks in their wake, much like the best train conductors. The site also sells decorative LED lanterns, as well as campfire color-changers that turn the flames green and blue.
