Lantern riddles are riddles that were written on the lanterns that are displayed during the Chinese Lantern Festival or Chinese middle autumn festival and so on.
灯谜是中国元宵节或中秋节写在灯笼上的谜语。


People in the festival must guess the answer from a word , a poem or a phrase, guessing the riddles are as hard as fighting with a tiger, so that lantern riddles have another name - 'lantern tigers'.
人们必须从一个字、一首诗或是一个短语猜出答案。猜灯谜和打老虎一样难,所以灯谜有一个别名——灯虎。
