Colombia is a very religious country based in the Catholic church,so is a lots of festivals and the bigger is called SEMANA SANTA(holly week)
on this week people represent the life and passion of Jesus Crist and all celebration finished in the church with services.
Colombia have lots of festivals and basic each town have they own festival but is a mayor carnivals like Barranquilla carnival what leng about a month,and pasto call Blancos y ******(whites and blacks) to remember the slave times of the conquest,white people turn faces black and black turn faces in white,***** is not a disrespectfully term in Colombia since they don't have racial discrimination problems like in US.
Colombia have many types of music but is a mayor types like SALSA, MERENGUE and VALLENATO, but depends where in the country you are you found llanera(typical music from valleys in Colombia and Venezuela) de cuerda or carrilera (music from the mountains zone, very romantic and listened from broken hearts around alcohol and bohemia, and of course the Cumbia national music from Colombia.
is another genders and modern tones is coming around the country but like I say every zone have they own instruments and typical music.Source(s): Proud to be Colombian,US resident

The God of Christ was not named Jehovah originally. The Jews only call Him that when they are using an inferior translation because there was no such thing as the J sound in Hebrew until about 500 years ago. Jehovah is a name that came out of Greek manuscripts of the Bible being translated them into English when ends up with the tetragammaton (YHWH) being rendered incorrectly as as JHWH (because Greek had only the J to use instead of a Y). If you are not familiar with the tetragammaton it is the four letters used in the original writings of the Israelite Bible when referring to their God because only the High Priest actually said His Name out loud and no one wrote it down it was too holy. I think we all know whom you mean when you say Jehovah but that was never His actual name. The people who go around worshipping a Jehovah God are either ignorant or following a god who has no relation to the God and Father of Jesus Christ (more correctly known as Y'shua the Messiah, for the same reasons). The reasons it makes a difference is exactly because of how stupid the whole Jehovah Witnesses doctrines that "Jehovah" is the most holy name of the One God who really does exist. The relationship between YHWH and democracy is that there was always some room for peoples opinions and wishes. The Jewish Bible aka Old Testament is full of examples of people asking for what they want too, not just individually but corporately. As for the Jehovah god who doesn't even exist, I've no idea what his views are.
