How often do you get the first few days of the Year of the Ox to fall on Valentine's Day? My guess is not often. So, this Chinese New Year Craft Lantern is rare to come by. It is a special lantern that you can display the spelling OX on the first and second day of Chinese New Year. Then on the third day, which is also Valentine's Day, flip the lantern upside down to read XO for hugs and kisses ❤️ ❤️.
