Holidays & Observances in Gabon

Gabon is a Western African country previously owned by the French. It is much more stable than its neighbors both economically and politically. Relatively low violence has allowed it to thrive. It is made up of many different tribes, though most of them are of Bantu origin. Christianity is the predominant religion in Gabon, often mixed with indigenous beliefs. There are few official holidays in Gabon that are not religious, so Christian holidays are the most widely celebrated.
