Kiribati Music and Dance Performances
Kiribati has its own unique forms of folk music and dancing featuring chanting, body precussion, and guitar music.

Christmas in Kiribati
In addition to church-going, gift-exchanging, and feasting, the period between Christmas and the New Year is a time for choir and dance performances, canoe racing, and many other family activities such as camping in Taiwan Park and visiting nearby islands.

New Year Celebrations
Kiribati are the first country in the world to welcome the New Year because its Line Islands are adjacent to the International Date Line. At one time the date line ran through the middle of Kiribati but that was changed to allow the entire country to experience the same day at the same time.
