Armenians celebrate Vardavar, the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord Jesus Christ

09:00, July 11

The Feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ is the third of the five main holidays of the Armenian Apostolic Church, according to Qahana.am.

This holiday is also known as Vardavar.

It is a popular custom during this holiday to sprinkle water on each other and release doves, which symbolize the biblical account of the great flood, the salvation of Noah's family from it, and his dove.

It is also customary to be decorated with flowers, which is an expression of great joy of seeing the glory of the Son of God.

The popular name Vardavar probably comes from the custom of pouring rose—“vard,” in Armenian—water.

The Vardavar holiday is preceded by fasting. And the next day—like after all the other main holidays of the Armenian Apostolic Church—is the day of the remembrance of the dead, when a Divine Liturgy and a requiem service for the souls of the dead is served in all Armenian Apostolic Churches.
