Another highlight is the “Rabbits Forest” set, featuring adorable rabbit lanterns spreading festive cheer in Flower Dome. This is inspired by an ancient Chinese folk game “遇兔呈祥”, which means “blessings upon the one who meets a rabbit”, the first person to find a rabbit in the Osmanthus tree forest is thought to receive good blessings!
