Holidays & Observances in The Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands is a British Overseas Territory made up of three islands in the Caribbean Sea. The culture of the Cayman Islands has been affected by many outside influences. British culture can be seen in everything from the language to the holidays with celebrations such as the Queen’s Birthday. Christianity is almost exclusively the religion of the Islands, and Christian holidays are very important. The Islands also have a close relationship with Jamaica and other West Indian islands that can be seen most strongly in the traditional food and music found on the islands. Today, one of the most important influences is the United States of America. The Islands’ economy depends upon off-shore banking and tourism, mainly from Americans. Holiday celebrations are generally very similarly to American celebrations.
