STEPANAKERT, FEBRUARY 7, ARTSAKHPRESS: The representative of the Naregatsi Art Institute Shoushi Center, Ani Kaplanyan, told “Artsakhpress” the above-said. " Tyarndarach (Trndez) is an Armenian feast of purification celebrated on February 13, the eve of the Candlemas Day Divine liturgies will be offered, the traditional bonfire symbolizing this holiday will be made.
Then Armenian national songs and dances will be performed,” she said. Like many folk festivals that coincide with Christian feasts, Trndez is pagan in origin, but has merged with the feast of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple (in the Armenian Apostolic Church it is called the Coming of the Son of God into the Temple). Traditionally, Candlemas is celebrated 40 days after Christmas. As the Armenian Apostolic Church celebrates Christmas and Epiphany on the same day, January 6, the feast of Presentation in Armenia falls on February 14, and Trndez is celebrated the day before.
