Holidays & Observances in Fiji

Fiji is an archipelago in the South Pacific. Its culture has been affected by many different outside cultures. It was owned by England for many years, and many people still speak English as a result. Christianity is the predominant religion, brought to the islands by missionaries. Indian culture has also had an effect, as many Indians were brought to Fiji to work in the fields. The Indo-Fijians now living in Fiji often still practice Hinduism and Islam, making these the second and third most common religions. Despite these influences, ethnic Fijians still have a strong connection to their indigenous traditions. This is particularly evident in the arts, where traditional forms of crafts and dance are common parts of every celebration. The multicultural personality of Fiji means that holidays are celebrated differently throughout the country.
