Martinique is an overseas department of France located in the Caribbean. French culture has affected every part of the island’s culture, from language to religion to customs. French holidays such as Bastille Day are celebrated each year in Martinique. The island is also influenced by the surrounding Caribbean culture, so today it is a mixture of France and The Caribbean. The predominant religion is Roman Catholicism, so catholic holidays are very important.
