Holidays & Observances in El Salvador
El Salvador is a small, Spanish-speaking country in Central America. The predominant religion of El Salvador is Roman Catholicism, though Protestantism has become popular recently. The popularity of both of these belief systems has made Christianity an important part of Salvadoran culture. Its holidays are celebrated all across the country. Salvadoran holidays are celebrated festively with parades, fairs, and colorful traditions. Though Christianity is the main influence on the holidays, some indigenous traditions are continued in modern customs.
