National Day in Kuwait
National Day in Kuwait is celebrated on the 25th of February to mark the creation of the state in 1961. The nation-wide festivities include an elaborate fireworks display, public meetings and conferences, get-togethers with food and drink for everyone and plenty of entertainment and activites. A lot of families visit each other to mark their country’s national day, but many people are seen celebrating in public areas like the Messila Beach and Al-Sha'ab Leisure Park, where the crowds vary from young children to their elders. Almost the whole country is lit in bright lights and decorated with the national flag and emblems, and citizens are usually seen in traditional clothing.
