Holidays & Observances in Bahrain
Bahrain is a Middle Eastern archipelago located in the Persian Gulf. Like its most of its neighbors, it is a predominantly Muslim country, but freedom of religion means that small populations of other religions also have a place in Bahrain. Hindus and Christians make up about 20% of the total population. Holidays in Bahrain are generally personal observations rather than public ones. There are few national holidays in the country, and those are usually celebrated quietly. Independence Day is probably the most enthusiastically celebrated holiday.
