  • 4. Climate• Mostly warm in the Bahamas, temperature around high 70’s to low 80 degrees. In certain parts of the Bahamas it is very swampy; which makes it very humid around there. There are also natural host springs scattered across the Bahamas.
  • 5. Holidays• Junkanoo carnival is a large contributor to the music of The Bahamas. It is a type of street carnival which occurs on Boxing Day (December 26) and New Years Day (January 1). This traditional celebration was started with an African slave by the name of John Canoe. Slaves were given a special holiday at Christmas time, when they could leave the work of the plantation behind and celebrate. The parades are characterized by spectacular costumes made of crepe paper and powerful rhythms beaten traditionally on goatskin drums (accompanied more recently with tom-tom drums
  • 6. Descendants• Most white residents of the Bahamas are descendants of the first English settlers, who emigrated to Bermuda in 1647 to gain religious freedom and settled on the island of Eleuthera.
  • 7. Agriculture• Agriculture: mangrove forests, fruit crops (especially citrus), vegetables for export; livestock for local markets• Because the Bahamas soil is so rich, it can grow many crops, and all of the rich fields can hold a wide variety of animals that can graze on those fields.
  • 8. Economy• Economy of Bahamas depends greatly on tourism and banking. With tourism also relates to airports. There are only four airports in all of the Bahamas! Those four airports most likely take in the most cash every year then anywhere else in the Bahamas. Most tourists bring lots of money for souvenirs, rental cars, and places to sleep. That helps the Bahamas banking.
