Holidays & Observances in Palau
Palau is a collection of islands in the Pacific Ocean. It has been occupied by many different countries including Japan and the US. Tourism has made it one of the richest countries in Micronesia, with people visiting from Asia, America, and all over the world. Palau’s culture is a mixture of traditional aspects and modern western standards. Most of the country practiced Christianity brought from European settlers, but some still hold on to indigenous beliefs, sometimes combining them with Christianity especially in the holidays. Christmas is by far the most important religious holiday, though it is celebrated on the 26th of December instead of the 25th.
