Lucky Balloons

The lucky balloon is a tradition here and we send some off every time we come. They consist of a round cylinder shape about 18” in diameter and 4’ tall, and made of either tissue or fine white cloth. At the bottom is a lighter ring that you light. Then like a hot air balloon, it fills with the hot air then rises up and away. With it goes all your bad luck and any wish you make or prayer you say for someone. It’s always lit at night and you watch it until it becomes just a speck in the sky. Tanner is bringing some home. When he sends one off, someone will probably report it as a UFO or something “strange in the sky”.
