    Custom - holiday?

    I was given a task to write an essay about one custom in my country. I chose Novruz which is a national holiday celebrated in the early spring in Azerbaijan. However, I am not sure if I can talk about a holiday as a custom. Is it correct to refer to a national holiday as a custom?

    Thanks in advance.

    Only those assigning the task can say for sure, but I would think that if you choose to celebrate this holiday, then it is your custom.
