The Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates Easter - Holy Christ's Resurrection - on the next Sunday after the full moon from March 21st to April 26th. Ancient spiritual Sharakans sound in the temples and traditional Easter tables are laid in the houses of believers.
The feast of Holy Resurrection is also called Easter, which means deliverance, deliverance from sins and returns to God. Easter is considered to be one of the greatest holidays of the Old and the New Testament.
The night before Easter the churches serve the Holy Liturgy of Easter, and the celebrations begin. Greeting each other, Christians say: “Christ has risen from the dead!” - “Blessed is the Resurrection of Christ!”.
The traditions of Easter celebration in Armenia are very interesting. In Armenia, as in many other countries, it is a great tradition to paint eggs at Easter. Usually, the eggs are painted red, because this colour is considered to symbolize the colour of Jesus Christ’s blood.
