The Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations are in full effect, and the celebrations so far have been nothing short of spectacular. As you can see from the photos, citizens of Macau, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Hong Kong, and many more are ringing in the Lunar New Year in style. 

Each country tends to celebrate the holiday in their own distinct way, but the Lunar New Year parties are typically time for family and friends to get reunited with one another. 

It also marks the busiest time of year for travel for Asian citizens, with state media officials expecting as many as three billion passenger trips in the next six to seven weeks. While the holiday is not officially celebrated in the United States, many Asian Americans host Lunar New Year parties in the States.
