Kazakhstan is celebrating two bank holidays in March: March 8 and Nauryz, Tengrinews reports.
According to the Holidays Law of Kazakhstan if a bank holiday falls on a weekend day - Saturday or Sunday - that is a day off anyway, then the next workday becomes the day off for the bank holiday.
March 8 -- the International Women's Day -- is Saturday this year. So, Kazakhstan will enjoy days of celebrations on March 8-10.
However, this works best only for those who have a 5-day working week. Those who have a 6-day working week will have a day off on Saturday, March 8, then their usual Sunday off, and then a workday on March 10.
Another spring holiday Nauryz - the Kazakh New Year - is celebrated for three days on March 21-23. It also falls on a weekend this year, so Kazakhstan will have a 5-day vacation from March 21 to March 25 to party the equinox day.
Those who have a 6 day working week will have March 21-24 off for Nauryz.
