Overview of festivals and celebrations in Palestine
The West Bank, a Palestinian territory, is home to Arab Palestinians. Approximately half of them are Christians, the latter are Muslims. Holidays of both confessions are widely celebrated in the territory, and so no one gets confused about Christmas or the holy month of Ramadan. In Ramallah, the administrative center of the State of Palestine, there is always a Christmas tree on the Yasser Arafat Square. The beautifully decorated tree is a magnet for people who enjoy gathering here. By the way, Palestine is a secular country; at least school education is secular here. Not many people are aware of this, but Palestine has the highest percentage of educated people in the Arab world – more than 92% of the territory’s residents can read and write.
