Tashkent, Uzbekistan - Every year the most favorite holiday, joyful and noteworthy Vardavar, is remembered and maintained in the Uzbekistan Armenian community. This ancient holiday is particularly relevant in mid-July summer heat when the thermometers rise in excess of 40 °C (more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Young people become its major participants. Having armed themselves with the basins, buckets and other containers they spill water on each other and on those around them with cheer and merriment.
According to tradition, first Catholicos St. Gregory the Illuminator after adopting Christianity did not deprive the people of the old memorable summer national religious holiday, which dated back from pre-Christian ages. And since then Vardavar has coincided with the Armenian church services on the occasion of the Feast of Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ are held. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the successive 14th Sunday (98th day) after Easter.
There are two Armenian Churches in Uzbekistan: Saint Virgin Mary Church in Samarkand and St. Philippos Church in Tashkent, the capital. Tashkent parish priest Ter Garnik Loretsyanis a great promoter of the summer ritual and as a rule the first generous splash of Vardavar first comes from him. The young parishioners and activists of the local Armenian Cultural Center then join in drenching everyone in sight.
