SECULAR CELEBRATIONS

Aside from the major Christian and Islamic holidays, Ghana celebrates New Year’s Day, Independence Day (6 March), Worker’s Day (1 May), Republic Day (1 July), and Revolution Day (31 December). New Year’s Day follows the usually western pattern of partying. Independence Day is the main national holiday celebrating freedom from colonial rule and is marked by parades and political speeches. The remaining holidays are also highly politicized and provide forums for speeches by the major national leaders. Revolution Day is especially important for the ruling party as it marks the anniversary of Rawlings’ coup.
