Crowds celebrate Songkran, the Thai New Year, in Bangkok, Thailand, by throwing water at each other. Traditionally, the festivities are rooted in the zodiac calendar, when the sun enters the sign of Aries. Songkran is a time of cleansing and renewal. Hence the water. But what was once a means of washing Buddha statues and the hands of elders has now turned into a nationwide water fight.
