Holidays & Observances in Romania

Romania is a country in Southeastern Europe. The people of Romania are mostly ethnic Romanians, but it is also home to many Hungarians, Germans, and Russians. Though it is a culturally diverse society its religion is relatively uniform. Most Romanians practice Eastern Orthodox Christianity, so it is an important part of the culture. Christian holidays are widely celebrated with unique traditions that often take place in the church. Non-religious holidays are not nearly as important as Christian holidays.
