Vardavar is one of the five main holidays of Armenian Apostolic Church. The feast has thousand-year-old history. This is one of the most beloved feasts of our nation, dedicated to Astghik, goddess of love and beauty. These days people used to decorate the statue of goddess Astghik, the temples dedicated to her with roses, present roses to each other and squirted water at each other. The last tradition is preserved up today. 

 

Nowadays we celebrate this holiday 98 days after the Holy Easter: from 28th of June to 1st of August. Christian teaching interprets the holiday as Transfiguration of Christ, as the symbol of purified and deified man. As the grape blessing day is considered to the day of first tasting of grape, Vardavar is considered to be the day of first tasting of apples.  You can combine participation in Vardavar feast with sightseeing in Armenia withinArmenian weekend tour package.
