Holidays & Observances in Tunisia

Tunisia is a country in North Africa. It has been considered an important trade location since Ancient Roman times, and therefore it has traded hands constantly throughout its history and has been influenced by many different cultures. Islam is the official state religion, but Tunisia’s location on the Mediterranean has led to a large amount of Western influence, so it is more liberal than most Islamic states. Though a vast majority of the population practices Islam, freedom of religion and women’s rights are encouraged while Islamic fundamentalism is discouraged. Islamic holidays are still very important and are celebrated widely throughout the country.
