Most of the Libyan events are primarily politically or religiously inclined. Libya celebrates Independence Day on 24 December, Revolution Day on 23 July and National Day on 1 September (this event commemorates the day the monarchy was overthrown).

Apart from these politically-based holidays, certain other events are celebrated during the year. These may occur on different days, depending on the Islamic calendar. During Ramadan, which extends for around one month and culminates with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, a majority of shops, restaurants and business remain open; however, in certain orthodox areas, life may come to a standstill.
