Holidays & Observances in Bolivia

Bolivia is a landlocked country located in the middle of South America. Like many South American countries, it was owned by Spain for several hundred years. But Bolivians have managed to keep much of their culture from before Spanish rule, as most of the population is descended from Incan and pre-Incan tribes. Many people do not even speak Spanish. Roman Catholicism, as the predominant religion in Spain, has taken over in Bolivia, though it is often mixed with indigenous beliefs. There are very few national holidays in Bolivia, and religious holidays such as Carnival are generally the most enthusiastically celebrated.
