UNESCO gave a festival an award. It put South Korea's Lotus Lantern Festival on its list of intangible cultural heritage. If something is intangible, we cannot touch it. Events like South Korea's Lotus Lantern Festival, a dance or a method for weaving baskets are examples of intangible heritage.

The lotus festival celebrates Buddha's birthday. It symbolizes light. The festival is over 2,000 years old. People visited a temple in 57BC to see lotus lanterns. Today, people decorate temples with paper and bamboo lanterns. Towns hold parades. People carry lanterns through the streets. The festival is loved by people worldwide.
