Some angolan traditions

Angolan culture reflects centuries of Portuguese rule, in the predominance of the Portuguese language and of the Catholic Church. About three-quarters of Angola’s population is Christian, half being Roman Catholic and a quarter being Protestant.
The diverse ethnic communities – the Ovimbundu, Ambundu, Bakongo, Chokwe, Mbunda and other peoples – to varying degrees maintain their own cultural traits, traditions and languages, but in the cities, where slightly more than half of the population now lives, a mixed culture has been emerging since colonial times.
Traditional Angolan religions believe in a close connection with the spirit of dead ancestors. They believe that ancestors play a part in the lives of the living. Therefore, the spirits of dead ancestors remain prominent members of the community.
The only two truly religious holidays on the official state holidays calendar in Angola are Christmas and Good Friday. But there is also a big Carnival season 40 days before Easter as people prepare for Lent.
The date of the holiday changes each year, such that the date of Easter Sunday can be anytime between 22 March and 25 April.
The biggest Christmas celebrations are in Luanda and other major cities, but people celebrate Christmas countrywide.
Although many people when asked may say they are Angolan, most of them will really have their primary sense of identity and loyalty to a tribe.
