Holidays & Observances in Chile

Chile is a Spanish-speaking country in South America. It is a long, thin country that dominates most of the west coast of South America. Because it is so long, the climate varies greatly across the country, and traditions can also vary from place to place, though some things remain the same. Spanish culture has been the most prominent influence, with the majority of the population speaking Spanish and practicing Roman Catholicism. Christian holidays and feast days are very important to Chilean culture. Even most of the festivals in Chile are meant to celebrate Christian saints. Holidays in Chile are often upbeat affairs that can last for weeks. They include music, parades, food, and alcohol, especially in the big cities.
