Holidays & Observances in Bermuda

Bermuda is a British overseas colony located off the coast of North Carolina. The island was uninhabited before being taken over by the British, so British culture has been very influential on Bermuda. Many Bermudian holidays follow traditions that stem from British traditions. About half of the population are descendants of former slaves, but African culture has not become as important in Bermuda as it has in many West Indian countries. Some cultural elements such as music and dance have been brought here by West Indian immigrants. Tourism is one of the most important industries in Bermuda, and many non-citizens choose to spend Christmas and other holiday breaks here.
