Trndez: Armenians Celebrate Purification

There is a special holiday happening here in Armenia just one day before Valentine’s Day. Trndez or Tiarndaraj is celebrated by young adults, newlyweds and families throughout Armenia. The celebration is now considered to be a Christian feast. It is the feast of the presentation of baby Jesus to the temple 40 days after his birth.
