Festivals and Traditions

A major Carnival is held in Malta every year. They all gather at the church and parade around the streets with Mary. After this, they celebrate with dancers and stalls of traditional foods. Some kids even get water guns and shoot anyone in sight.

Some traditions they always have are main ones like Christmas, Easter, Good Friday and birthday dinners. They get together at a different persons house every time.

Facts About Malta
The majority of people in Malta are Roman Catholics.

Churches in Malta have two clocks. There is one on the left and right. The one on the right shows the correct time and the one on the left shows the wrong time so it confuses Satan from disturbing the mass.

Because Malta doesn't have any mountains or rivers, the fresh water supply is very limited.

All About Malta
Malta is a small nation located in the Mediterranean sea. The capital city is Valletta. People in Malta speak Maltese. Malta has many historical buildings still standing. It is very famous because St Paul (From the Bible,) was shipwrecked and sadly passed away. (10/2)
Malta has changed in many ways. In 870 AD, Malta was taken over by the Arabs. In 1090, count Roger of Normandy drove out the Arabs and the Normans took control. Malta is 316 sq Km. Malta's Government is a Republic and their head of state is George Abela.
