Namibia is a Southwestern African country between Angola and South Africa. It has an extremely diverse population filled not only with many indigenous African tribes, but also with different groups of white people of European and South African descent. This makes for unique cultural elements that vary throughout the country. Christianity is the predominant religion, so many Christian holidays are celebrated. Traditional indigenous beliefs are also popular amongst some groups, many of which combine those beliefs with Christianity.
