Still Celebrating The Holidays With Armenian Christmas
We are now getting adjusted to the the new year and almost everyone has finished celebrating their holiday season.
That is except for Armenians, we still have one more dinner celebration for January 6th which is our official Christmas. This was the date Christmas was celebrated up to the fourth century among all Christians. But for many different reasons (too long to get into in a blog story) the date was changed to December 25th.
Well Armenians decided to keep this date and we have always celebrated on January 6th. So now we basically celebrate Christmas twice, once on December 25th and a second time on January 6th.
I am not sure if you all know that I am originally Armenian, but I have been living in the US for over 40 years after I moved here when I was only 13 years old. However, I still speak fluent Armenian and have always kept my heritage and culture close to my heart.
In fact, my son who was born here in the US, also speaks fluent Armenian and has many Armenian friends. It was always important to me that he learns about his heritage and where his parents and ancestors came from.
We live in Glendale which is a suburb of Los Angeles and we have a lot of Armenians that live here. I don’t really know why all of us migrated to this particular city, but I like it here and it has been home to me for many many years.
So this weekend we will celebrate yet one more Christmas with my Armenian family and that is just fine with me since it is always fun to get together with loved ones and celebrate any occasion. We will officially be done with our holidays by Monday and that is when I will take our tree and decorations down and pack them away until next year.
As for today’s outfit, I decided to restyle our best-selling Novelty Multi Color Yarn Long Chenille Cardigan with Fringe. This piece has definitely been a favorite for many of our customers and we only have a few pieces left. I personally love this piece as well, as the chenille yarn is very pretty and soft and the color is beautiful.
This time I styled it with our Pearl Peasant Blouse with Metallic stripes which is a very soft and feminine blouse and it looks great with this cardigan. The metallic stripes are very subtle, and they only give it a little bit of shimmer, so you can easily wear it to any daytime outing.
I also added our Gray Pink Ivory Paisley Print Scarf which I have had in our store for a few weeks, but I have not had the chance to style it with any outfits until today. Well let me tell you, it looks great with this cardigan, I think the beautiful pink and purple colors blend nicely with the cardigan colors.
To finish off the look, I added our Blush Stone and Gold Tone Chain Earrings, which also pick up on all the pink shades.
