About National Day of Gratitude
Kazakhstan celebrates the Day of Gratitude on March 1st. It was initiated to mark the establishment of the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan (APK) in 1995.
Kazakhstan is the world's largest landlocked country and the ninth-largest country in the world. It should therefore come as no surprise that this Central Asian nation is made up of a variety of ethnic groups, with representatives of more than a hundred nationalities.
In 2021, the Astana Times spoke with Deputy Chairman of the Assembly of the People of Kazakhstan Zakirzhan Kuziyev who said: “The Day of Gratitude is an important holiday for people of different ethnic groups living in Kazakhstan. All ethnic communities express gratitude to each other and the Kazakh people and celebrate their co-existence as one nation.”
