20th December festivities

Although the feeling of togetherness is celebrated all year round on Reunion Island, during special events or moments when the residents simply get together, the melting pot takes on a whole new meaning during the festivities of 20th December. This date is the anniversary of the abolition of slavery. So every 20th December brings the inhabitants together to commemorate and celebrate the shaping of Reunion culture by multiple influences.
