Holidays & Observances in Belize

Belize is a multicultural country located in Central America. The occupants of Belize at the time of the Europeans’ arrival were the Mayans, who left behind many temples as well as pieces of their culture. Belizeans are influenced by the Mayans as well as other indigenous people around the Caribbean. They were ruled by the British until recently, but they are surrounded by Latin American and Creole Caribbean cultures, so all of those separate traditions come together to create Belize’s unique identity. Many holidays in Belize reflect this myriad of cultures and celebrate the many different aspects of the Belizean way of life.
