In Kazakhstan, spring is crowding winter and fully comes into its own on March 21 – it is on this special day that the bright holiday of Nauryz is celebrated, marking not only the vernal equinox, but also the renewal of nature. Nauryz in Kazakhstan symbolizes fertility, friendship and love. On this day, people dress up smartly, go to visit their relatives and friends and do not stop good wishes. For the eastern peoples, Nauryz is like the New Year, because both holidays are considered heralds of a new life. Nauryz holiday in Persian means nothing more than "new day".

Nauryz is not only a public holiday of Kazakhstan, celebrated for three days, but is also recognized by the UN as an international holiday. Nauryz is celebrated in all countries of Central Asia, as well as in Georgia, India, Iran, China, Turkey and many other countries around the world.
