Holidays & Observances in Swaziland
Swaziland is a country in southwest Africa. It still maintains much of the indigenous Swazi peoples’ precolonial culture, including being the only country in Africa to still have an absolute Monarchy. Christianity did have and influence on Swaziland, but the most commonly practiced religion is Zionism, which combines Christianity with indigenous beliefs. Christian and legal holidays are important to the Swazis, but they are not nearly as important as the traditional ceremonies of harvest and important milestones celebrated throughout the year in Swaziland.
