Holidays & Observances in Yemen

Yemen is a Middle Eastern country on the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. Once an important stop for traders of the ancient world, Yemen has been touched by many cultures and has been home to most of the world’s religions. It is only a recently unified country, and since independence it has seen lots of violence, and therefore much of its identity as a country is still undeveloped. Though many religions have affected it, Islam is the most popular religion in Yemen today. Very few national holidays are celebrated, but Islamic holidays are widely celebrated by people across the country.
