The Republic of Kazakhstan has numerous holidays celebrated throughout the year. The holidays are categorized into three: national, public and religious / professional. The public holidays are set under the president's directives. Employees are given a paid holiday during an official holiday.
If any holiday falls on a weekend, a day is set aside on the next week. During official holidays, all government offices, businesses, and institutions are closed.
Kazakhstan celebrates major religious holidays. The most celebrated is the Qurban Eid/ Eid Al-Adha which is the sacrifice feast. It is the Muslim holiday celebrated worldwide. The day marks the end of the Haji, (annual pilgrimage to Mecca). The most important part of the celebration is the first day where sacrificial lambs are offered to Allah. Individual mosques always determine the size of the lamb to be used. In the morning, Muslims perform Eid Namaz "Eid prayer." The prayers act as the basis to begin sacrificial rituals.
Being a Muslim dominated nation, Christians and other religions are allowed to hold their holy days, but they are not recognized as public holidays.
National holidays are held in remembrance of historical events that have importance in the development of the Republic of Kazakhstan. There are several important national holidays celebrated the major ones are: Fatherland Defenders Day, The Republic of Kazakhstan National Symbol Day and Political Representative Victims Day. These holidays are observed to commemorate the victims and ancestors whose effort led to the liberation of the nation.
The nation celebrates public holidays that have social-political importance. These traditional Kazakhstan holidays include the New Year, Nauryz, Unity Day, and Capital Day.
