May in Armenia is called “the month of victories”, because during this period there are several holidays, marking important historical events. To already traditional Day of Workers (May 1) and Victory Day (May 9) a few more significant days have been added over the last couple of decades: May 8 – Yerkrapah Day (the union of Armenian volunteers who defended the integrity and independence of the country in the 90’s, in the period of formation).
May 28 – Republic Day (a holiday dedicated to the proclamation of the first Republic of Armenia).
