Holidays & Observances in Djibouti

Djibouti is a small country in Eastern Africa. It is made up of several different tribes, the largest of which are the Somali and the Afar. Recent conflict between the two tribes has led Djibouti to be one of the poorest countries in the world and has made celebrations much less festive. There are very few official holidays. Islam is the predominant religion, and its holidays are the most widespread in the country. Mouloud, the celebration of the prophet Muhammad’s birth is one of the most festive days of the year.
