Holidays & Observances in Zambia
Zambia is a landlocked country in southern Africa. It is an extremely diverse country with many different ethnic groups speaking over 70 languages. Due to poor health in the area, Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world, but cultural traditions such as holidays remain important to the people even during hard times. Christianity is the most common religion, though it is often mixed with indigenous beliefs. Many holidays celebrated in Zambia showcase this mixture of belief systems.
