Holidays & Observances in Dominica

Dominica is an English-speaking country in the Caribbean. For many years, France and England fought to gain control over this island. So, even though it was most recently owned by England, the French have had a significant effect on the culture leaving behind their religion of Roman Catholicism and their language, which many people still speak. African and indigenous cultures have also made their mark, and today it is a mixture of all of these different influences. Carnival is probably the most festive celebration in the country and is considered to be one of the most unique Carnival celebrations in the Caribbean.
