Public holidays in Fiji reflect the country’s cultural diversity. Public Holidays that fall on the weekend are usually moved to either the Friday of the preceding week or the Monday of the following week. This includes religious holidays as well, though in essence they are celebrated on the actual day.
Fiji is well connected by air to Australia and New Zealand. With 333 islands to choose from for your holiday, scattered throughout the dazzling blue waters of the South Pacific Ocean, there’s certainly no shortage of shores.
Items that will be shared generally across the Fiji group in ceremony and social interactions are Yaqona, Tabua, Mats, Masi, the following will discuss this in further details. Yaqona is a cousin of the pepper plant. The Tabua is a whale’s tooth and is a valued gift in ceremonial presentations. Mats are generally rectangular and vary in design between provinces. One of the uses of Masi is to wrap the newborn baby collected from hospital, while at the other end of the life cycle it decorates the room where the body lies before burial.
