Malaita Province
Solomon Islands, 15th August, 2000
Historically, sharks were often worshipped and a few Malaita Islanders still believe spirits reside in them. There are 15 tribal languages and dialect groups including the 11,000 strong ancestors worshipping Kwaio tribe, who live in the mountains along the east coast. Among the traditions includes shark calling.

Christmas Day
Solomon Islands, 25th December, 2000
Christmas is celebrated in a traditional custom, here in the islands. Often celebrated starting with an eve mass, in churches, then proceeded with a family meal, usually beginning with a fruit cake together with wine. Holiday presents are then exchanged after dinner. Although, some families does not practice this, as it is not a custom, and has been commercialized. Friends and families go for visiting on the next day, bringing souvenirs or gifts.
