Holidays & Observances in Chad
Chad is a diverse country in Central Africa. It is broken up into hundreds of separate tribes and ethnic groups that speak over 100 different languages, though French and Arabic are official. Many people in Chad speak more than one language. Recent violence between tribes and surrounding countries has left both the economy and the people in bad shape, but traditions continue to be important aspects of Chadian life. Most of the country identifies as either Muslim or Christian, though those are usually practiced in combination with traditional beliefs. Celebrations and festivities vary between tribes, but religious holidays are probably the most widespread in Chad.
