Holidays & Observances in Madagascar

Madagascar is an island in the Indian Ocean located off the southeastern tip of Africa. It is made up of many different tribes with different customs and beliefs. Though the island has been under the control of several different European countries (most recently France), it has managed to hold on to much of its original identity. Christianity has been accepted by almost half of the people, but most of the rest of the people still practice indigenous beliefs. Holidays are celebrated differently by different tribes depending on the religion they follow.
