This past weekend, revelers around the world celebrated Lunar New Year. While the holiday is commonly known as "Chinese New Year," the festivities span the globe, with fireworks and parades commemorating 2013: the Year of the Snake everywhere from Manhattan to Manila. (Even Psy got into the act.)
Though this year's celebrations have been dampered by a pollution crisis in China and a wave of self-immolations in Tibet, swarms of people still managed to put on quite a show to ring in the new year.
