Holidays in Cuba — Official, Cultural and maybe Religious

from ASJA

Many of Cuba’s national holidays celebrate historical triumphs such as Castro’s rise to power, and they are marked by military parades, demonstrations and speeches. There are fewer religious holidays than in other Latin countries because of the government’s strained relationship with religion. January 1 does double duty. As Triumph of the Revolution Day, it honors Castro’s victory, and as Nino de Atocha’s Day, it’s devoted to the Christ child and Elegua, the foremost deity in Santeria.

ASJA’s cultural tour falls between the February Cigar Festival in Havana and Cine Pobre, the largest Cuban film festival, in April. This festival showcases the very best of Cuba’s low-budget movies in outdoor screenings.

Come along with ASJA to Cuba March 21-28, 2020. Call travel planner Charles Bittner at 617-833-1435 for more information and to register.
