Holidays & Observances in Switzerland

Switzerland is a country in central Europe. It was famously a neutral country during the world wars and has always fostered a sense of peace and understanding. Switzerland is a diverse country as it takes most of its cultural influence from its surrounding countries. French, German, and Italian are all official languages along with Romansh. All four languages are widely spoken in different regions of the country. Christianity is the predominant religion split about equally between Protestant and Catholic. There is a growing irreligious population, but Christianity remains a huge influence on the culture, and its holidays are practiced by most of the population.
