Holidays & Observances in Comoros

Comoros is a collection of islands off the coast of Africa near Madagascar. It is one of the least populated countries in the world, but it is densely populated because the entire country takes up only about 800 square miles. Culturally, it is very diverse, taking elements from all the surrounding areas. It has three official languages: Arabic, French, and Comorian which mixes Swahili with Arabic. Many people speak multiple languages. Islam is almost exclusively the only religion and Islamic holidays are celebrated across the country. The happiest celebrations in Comoros are generally wedding celebrations, which are often week-long celebrations including feasts, parties, and gift giving. Many of the official holidays are solemn events such as death anniversaries.
