Given Suriname’s great ethnic and religious diversity, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and secular holidays all appear on the same public holidays calendar. And it’s not uncommon for people of different faiths to attend events for holidays based on a different faith.

You will find Good Friday services commemorating the death of Christ for sinners, midnight masses that remember the time he spent in the tomb, and Easter Sunrise services that take joy in his resurrection all across Suriname.

Many also go out on Easter Weekend on mini-vacations, and there are many tourists who come in to see the sites. It’s a time of family, fun, and little adventures to the interior rain forest (for some). No wonder many use Easter Monday as a chance to recover and recoup!
