#FriFotos: Celebrations Around the World

Posted February 22, 2013 by Elica Sue in Blog

#FriFotos is a weekly Twitter chat where travelers can share their favorite photos based on a certain theme. To see this week’s theme and photos, search #FriFotos on Twitter. Tweet one of your own and join in the fun!  

This week’s #FriFotos topic is nothing other than CELEBRATE. Every country has its own festivals and celebrations, but one thing that unites us all is that they’re all done with a smile on our faces and happiness in our hearts. Check out some of the photos we’ve collected — from China, to South Sudan, to Mexico — and see how the world celebrates.
