Holidays & Observances in Lebanon
Lebanon is a Middle Eastern country located on the Mediterranean Sea. It is one of the most diverse countries in the Middle East both culturally and religiously. A majority of the population is Muslim, but there are many Christians in Lebanon as well. Both religions have several different groups and sects, so traditions vary greatly throughout the country. Much of the country’s character is determined by the ancient relationships between these groups. Lebanon has very few national holidays – most holidays are determined by the individual religious group.
