Thailand definitely wins the award for the most fun spring celebration, which also serves as their New Year's celebration -- a three day water fight called Songkran. Thousands of revelers douse each other with water and even painted elephants get in on the fun.

Despite the excitement and merriment, Thai authorities crack down on the festival, making sure there is no alcohol or indecent exposure to keep the festivities traditional and appropriate for all ages.
