Holidays & Observances in Suriname

Suriname is a country in northeaster South America. It is an incredibly diverse country populated by descendants of indigenous peoples, Dutch and English colonists, former African slaves, and Indian and Chinese workers brought over when slavery was abolished. All of these cultures combined to make up Suriname’s unique identity. Everything from language to religion varies between the different groups of people including holiday celebrations. Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam are the most common religions, so their holidays are celebrated across the country.
