Holidays & Observances in The United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is a European country made up of four regions: England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales. Each region has its own national identity while also identifying with the country as a whole. As a major colonial power, England has spread its culture and its language all across the world. British culture has affected every aspect of life in English-speaking countries including holiday traditions. Many of the holidays traditions celebrated all across the world have their roots in the United Kingdom. Religiously, the UK is diverse, but Christianity is the most common religion. Christian holidays are widely celebrated even by non-Christians.
