Holidays & Observances in Guadeloupe

Guadeloupe is an overseas region of France in the Caribbean. It is a mixture of many different cultures including East Indian, West Indian, and African, but its French culture is the thing that ties it all together. France contributed its language and its Catholic beliefs to the island. Though the celebrations tend to be more colorful in nature, the holidays themselves are mostly the same as those celebrated in France with a few exceptions.
