Religious

In Argentina, many creeds are adhered to because major migration waves settled down in the country in different times. As a result, several religious and popular devotion holidays take place all throughout the country. As a matter of fact, many of them have lately become tourism phenomena both at a national and international level, such as All Saints Day.

Major monotheistic religions in Argentina are Christianism, Judaism and Islamism. According to these religions, holidays and festivals do not have a fixed date, since they are set according to the lunar calendar. Major Jewish celebrations are Pesach (Passover), Shavuot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Hanukkah and International Holocaust Remembrance Day. As for Muslim holidays and observances, Eid-ul-Fitr, Ramadan, Mawlid and Eid-ul-Adha or Festival of Sacrifice should be noted. As for Christianity, Evangelism should be noted, their main festivals being Pentecost, Easter and Christmas, i.e. the same as Catholics’.

People who adhere to other creeds (some of which have been accepted by the Catholic Church but some others have not), are also strongly religious. Such is the case of those who worship Gauchito Gil and Difunta Correa, for instance.
