Holidays & Observances in Paraguay
Paraguay is a landlocked Spanish-speaking country in South America. It has maintained its indigenous identity more than any other country in the Americas. Its culture is a true mixture of indigenous and European influences. For example, most people in Paraguay are bilingual, speaking both Spanish and the native language, Guarani. Religiously, though, most people now practice Christianity instead of any indigenous religions. Christian holidays are very important in Paraguay and are celebrated across the country.
