April 13, 2013 A man wearing large pink glasses celebrates Songkran festival in Bangkok. The three-day festival, which runs from April 12 to April 14, is held each year to celebrate the Thai new year and promote the tourism industry. Participants splash water and put powder on each other’s faces as a symbolic sign of cleansing and washing away the sins from the past year. Barbara Walton/European Pressphoto Agency Buy Photo
