The Armenian calendar is filled with joyful and at the same time meaningful festivals. This time it is Vardavar.
It is a religious festival. The day of spilling water on each other. This festival was originally connected with old Armenian Goddess of water, beauty, love and fertility – Astghik. The tradition bears the meaning of asking for a fertile year, that is why it is celebrated before the harvest begins. Christianity kept this tradition and passed it on to generations.
