In Nagaland in India, tribes from all over the region meet to compete, dance, and celebrate. In Thailand, spectators look on as celebrants perform bizarre rituals at the Nine Emperor Gods Festival.

Spitak Earthquake Remembrance Day

Between 25,000 and 50,000 were killed in the 1988 Spitak Earthquake, which leveled much of Armenia’s infrastructure, most notably in the cities of Spitak, Gyumri, now Vanadzor, and Stepanavan. Armenian Earthquake Memorial Day is recognized every year on the anniversary of the event on December 7 to remember the victims and aftermath of the earthquake.
