As the crisp winter air wraps around us, the excitement of the new year fills us. At Kosmonia, we don’t just welcome this season; we embrace it with unparalleled enthusiasm. Recently, we immersed ourselves in the rich tapestry of Chinese traditions, specifically the revered winter solstice.

This December, Kosmonia held a festive team-building event during which we crafted luminous fish lanterns, an ancient winter solstice tradition that has stood the test of time. In Chinese culture, the fish is a symbol of abundance and wealth, and crafting lanterns in the shape of this animal represents wishes of prosperity, good fortune, and unity in the new year ahead.

Together, Kosmonia team members sat and diligently crafted these delicate lanterns using bamboo and paper, infusing them with vibrant colors along the way. On the night of the winter solstice, we gathered in the office park and danced with our colorful creations. As the vibrant fish lanterns made their way past various companies in the office park, the cold night was transformed into a breathtaking and illuminating spectacle.

This special experience not only strengthened bonds between Kosmonia team members, it also emphasized the value of diversity and inclusivity within our team and our creations. The delicate and sometimes challenging task of crafting lanterns teaches us that, although there may be challenges along the way, our efforts will eventually pay off as long as we persist.


May the joy and inspiration that comes with the winter solstice resonate not just in this moment, but throughout the year ahead. Let the warmth of shared traditions and the brilliance of collective effort light up this festive season and every day on our journey forward. Cheers to prosperity, unity, and a future aglow with endless possibilities!
