Holidays & Observances in Lithuania

Lithuania is a Baltic country in Northeastern Europe. It has a unique culture that mixes tradition with modern Baltic and Christian influences. Most Lithuanian people practice Roman Catholicism or other branches of Christianity, so Christian holidays are a very important part of the culture. Lithuanians emphasize holidays, believing that what happens on them is highly meaningful. For instance, things that happen on Easter and New Years are believed to predict what the rest of the year will be like, so everyone is kind and helpful on these days.
