As a Christian country, Armenia also celebrates Easter. Armenian Easter or “Surb Zatik” is one of the Armenia’s joyful holidays of the year.
Armenian Easter is one of the five Cardinal Feasts of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Armenians celebrate Easter in the interval from 22 March to 26 April. At this year, we celebrate at 1 April. This holiday helps people to get rid of sins and resumption towards God. Before Easter, all the believers observe a forty day fast to purify their body and spirit just like Christ. On Saturday evening, after the sacred liturgy, all the believers greet each other for Christ’s resurrection. On Sunday night people begin the true celebration of Easter.
Armenians prepare for this holiday long before the celebration day. For that day Armenian housewives plant wheat seeds in a beautiful plate, water it and place in a sunny place to make it grow faster. These seeds usually grow well and turn into a dense green carpet, which is soon decorated with colored eggs.
Generally, Armenians paint eggs in red, which symbolizes the blood of Christ. Unlike other countries where eggs are dyed with a variety of chemicals, Armenians dye eggs by using onion peels.
As a hospitable nation Armenians always lay a special table where every dish has its own symbol and significance. Armenian housewives prepare rice with raisins where rice is the symbol of the humanity, and raisins refer all the Christians. Besides it Armenian housewives put on the holiday table Armenian fish called ”Ishkhan” and red wine, which symbolizes the flesh and blood of Christ.
During Armenian Easter people greet each other by saying ”Քրիստոս հարյավ ի մեռելոց”/Christ is risen from the dead, to which you reply “Օրհնյալ է Հարությունը Քրիստոսի”/Blessed is the resurrection of Christ. Then people sit at the tables and play an interesting game. They choose hard boiled eggs and hit the other player’s egg with the intention to break it. People call it “egg tapping” or “egg fight”. The winner gets the eggs of the loser.
