Holidays & Observances in Syria

Syria is a Middle Eastern country on the Mediterranean. It is deeply rooted in cultural history influenced by the many groups of people who have lived here throughout time. Syria is currently in the midst of a violent civil war which has made it difficult for the people to concentrate on anything else including holidays. Islam is the most common religion. Historically there has been a sizable population of Christians in Syria, but non-Islamic religions are currently being largely prosecuted, so only Islamic holidays are celebrated openly.
