Possibly nowhere in the world is the calendar as filled with religious holidays as in Malaysia. And possibly nowhere in the world is there an open-door policy like Malaysia's for religious festivals. Friends of other faiths, whether they be from across the street or across the world, are welcomed into the homes and cultures of celebrants for a short time as their respective religious holiday is observed. Contact the Malaysian Tourist Board, who will set you up with a family in Malaysia if you plan to be around during one of the holidays (and given the number of holidays...).
