Dear compatriots! I heartily congratulate Orthodox Christians and all Kazakhstanis on Christmas! For two millennia the Christmas holiday has been a symbol of faith in the goodness and justice, mercy and forgiveness, which fills the hearts of believers with joy and hope. This is a time for good thoughts and good deeds, care for people in need of assistance. The celebration of Orthodox Christmas is associated with humanism and acts of kindness. It is of paramount importance for the nation that has always put on top of all the traditions of mutual help and respect. Orthodox Christians are making a significant contribution to the preservation of interfaith accord, social stability and peace in our country. At present, people of Kazakhstan regardless of religion and ethnicity share with each other the joy of all the major religious holidays.
