The lantern festival in Republic of China succeeded the traditional style and connotation of Qing Dynasty. However, due to the ceaseless wars, there was no large-scale lantern show from the capital to remote towns. Various folk activities and entertainment programs were kept in the whole country. The Chinese lantern culture never stopped but prevailed even at the time of foreign invasion, mishap and war chaos. It survived toughly and kept its own traditional style. In the period of Republic of China, lantern show was held at the inauguration ceremony of president Sun Yat-sen, celebration ceremony of the victory of beating Yuan Shikai, a warlord, victory ceremony of Northern Expedition, victory ceremony of Anti-Japanese Invasion and so on.
