You will be invited to the major celebrations in your

community, such as marriages and baptisms, which usually

feature music and a feast for all participants. Burial and

funeral rites are also important occasions to attend and

show solidarity with bereaved members of your community.

Religious holidays such as Ramadan, Tabaski, and Christmas

offer additional opportunities to socialize with your

community and learn about local customs and ways of life.

Some communities also have dance halls (discos). There may

be organized sporting events between youth associations in

your community, especially those involving football. The best

opportunities for socializing will come when you have made

friends at your site.
