      When is Easter celebrated in Armenia in 2020?

      The Easter day is determined for each year as it is tightly intertwined with other religious festivals and church calendar. Because of this each year the festival can have a different date in the period between the end of March up to the middle of April. On the last Sunday before Easter Tsaghkazard is celebrated (in Armenian it means “ covered with flowers”). This festival meets Palm Sunday in the Orthodox Church. The whole house is decorated with branches of willow during this festival. Flower wreaths made with willow branches are symbols of happiness during the year. You can find these wreaths near the churches. In 2020 Easter is celebrated in Armenia on April 12.

      How do Armenians celebrate Easter?

      Armenians celebrate Easter usually at home with family and relatives. Painted eggs are the main attributes of the festival. Earlier it was used to paint the eggs only in red, but today all the colors of the rainbow are used. This tradition is especially beloved among children. They gather in the yard to “fight”, breaking the egg of the rival with his one. One of the main dishes on the holiday table is pilaf with raisins and fish. Traditional bread lavash and fresh herbs are served with. As a dessert, for sure, there is a flavored Easter cake with dried raisin and dried fruits.
