This past Monday, January 23rd, Lunar New Year celebrations took place all around the world. This is the year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac, which is considered the luckiest of all zodiac years! Thousands of photos, from family dinners to street festivities, were shared on Instagram, but here are a few of our favorites.
