It is crystal clear and the vivid fact that a country is famous and known among other countries on the map because of its customs, culture and traditions which happen to be the representatives of the history, faith, language and environment of that country. Similarly, the cultural and traditional patterns of Pakistan speak of our affluent legacy and customs prevailing on this land.  Pakistani culture is the fusion of Indian, Central Asian countries and the Middle East cultures. The cultures and traditions in Pakistan vary from province to province and even cities to cities.

In shaping the cultural life, Islam has essayed a brilliant role and has provided with us the patterns for molding our lives according to the prescribed methods.  Although the majority of the people in Pakistan is the followers of Islam and Islamic traditions but simultaneously Pakistan has other religions’ followers as well so these traditions of other religions have fused into our daily lives and become the parts of our own Pakistani culture. Below is the list of some of the chief festivals celebrated in Pakistan and the customs, which are embedded with these festivals.
