Holidays & Observances in The Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands is a collection of islands in the Pacific Ocean. It is populated mostly by indigenous people from the islands and from other surrounding islands, but its culture has been affected by many other influences that have come in contact with it including Japan, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Though it is an independent country, the British monarch is considered its monarch and it is dependent on the international community for economic and defense purposes. The most common religion on the Solomon Islands is Christianity, though traditions associated with indigenous beliefs are still commonly observed.
