Holidays & Observances in Central African Republic

The Central African Republic is a landlocked country in the center of Africa. It was owned by France for several years, and French is still the official language. The French brought their culture and their religion with them, but many people in the C.A.R. have held on to their indigenous beliefs. Christianity, however, is widely practiced and is continuing to grow with many missionaries operating in the country. Culturally, there are many different tribes with different beliefs and customs. Recent internal unrest has made peaceful celebrations of holidays very difficult.
