Most of the world’s Christian nations are celebrating Christmas today… and I wish a fantastic, Merry Christmas to you all!
Frankly, I feel somewhat disadvantaged being an Armenian and celebrating Christmas on January 6th, when nobody else does. It feels, that we’re completely detached from the rest of the world.
Meanwhile, technology and globalization are challenging the Armenian Apostolic Church’s monopoly of single-handedly defining a Christmas day for the nation: thousands of Armenians have already exchanged the ‘free Christmas candles’ made available on super popular Odnoklassniki.ru social network, hundreds are posting Christmas wishes on Facebook, Twitter, Hyeland, and email greetings, postcards with “Merry Christmas” and “Happy New Year” wishes.
