The visitor to Kosrae should be aware of Kosrae's holidays and events. Parties, sports events, and good cheer are ever-present, as are church services and prayers. Visiting us during these times is a great way to see Kosrae at its most festive.
One of the most unique activities of Kosrae is celebrating Christmas. The whole island practices “marching” and singing daily from the 1st of December right thru Christmas Day. Christmas Day is spent at church from sunup to sundown observing each group perform their “marching parade” routine accompanied by song. Some groups are 100+ people! This event is quite unique as each group has a matching “uniform”, local style bright floral print dresses for the ladies and shirts for the men. Bring a bag as candy and other goodies are thrown around like you were at a parade. Every 4 years is a reunion year, where Kosraeans from abroad will venture back to Kosrae to celebrate Christmas Kosraean style.
New Year's is a special day in Kosrae. Church services are held, and if you attend, you will be enthralled by the the melodic voices of the women's choir, reputedly the best in Micronesia. Adults and children line the roads and drench eveyone who passes with water.
