Holidays & Observances in Congo
The People's Republic of Congo (formerly Brazzaville, aka Congo-Brazzaville, the Congo Republic or Congo) is a country located in Southwest Africa. There are many different Congolese tribes, but the most prominent is the Bakongo tribe. Christianity is practiced by about half of the people, though it is often mixed with indigenous beliefs and almost 50% of the Congolese people practice indigenous beliefs alone. Official and Christian holidays are celebrated, but are generally not very enthusiastic. Many of the tribes most likely have their own celebrations to go along with their customs and religious beliefs.
