Holidays & Observances in Tuvalu

Tuvalu is an island country in the South Pacific Ocean. Most of its people are Polynesian and their culture is typical for Polynesian countries. For many years, Tuvalu was a British colony, so British culture can also be seen in many parts of the country such as the holidays. The British monarch is also the monarch of Tuvalu, though the country is now completely independent. British influence is most obvious in the religion of modern Tuvalu, which is almost 100% Christian. The only thing that remained from the peoples’ indigenous religion is ancestor worship. Respect for the ancestors is still a core part of the Tuvaluan lifestyle.
