Culture: 

The Culture of Saint Lucia blends the influences of African, French, and English heritage. The official language of the island is English but Kreole, a form of French patois, remains an influential secondary language. The people are predominantly Catholic but the religious climate is tolerant.

Lucia holds every year two main traditional festivals, La Woz (“The Rose”, on August 30) and La Magwit (“The Marguerite”, on October 17), organized by the two rival historic cultural associations (societés) with the same names whose affiliates comprise most of the country’s population.

The Christmas season is celebrated and a number of small festivals and parades take place throughout the island.
