Holidays & Observances in Singapore

Singapore is an island country at the south tip of the Malaysian peninsula. It is one of the most diverse countries in the world, with Chinese, Indian, and Malaysian being the most common ethnicities. The people practice Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Taoism, and Hinduism and speak Mandarin Chinese, English, Malay, and Tamil. Despite all their differences, Singaporeans are proud of their ability to coexist, so all of these influences mix together to create the unique identity of the country today. It is also one of the freest economies in the world as well as one of the least corrupt governments. Relatively few legal holidays are celebrated, but because of the diversity of religions, there is always some celebration going on.
