Know something more about Culture of Armenia:

Armenian religion, family life, and the rituals and traditions expressed in their culture have played a powerful role in helping Armenians around the world hold on to a strong sense of identity and heritage.

Armenian culture celebrates families and family life. Weddings no longer last for several days, but they are still lively affairs filled with joyous rituals. Extended families of both bride and groom play important roles; a godparent couple serves as witnesses and role models. At church wedding services, a priest crowns the couple to symbolize the creation of their “little kingdom” as a family. Dancing, music, and food follow, and large numbers of friends and family bestow generous gifts.

Music and Dance
The related arts of music and dance are deeply ingrained in Armenian culture. Ancient petroglyphs in the Armenian Highlands depict dancing figures. Special dances are performed at weddings, funerals, military occasions, and other important events. Their movements are symbolic. For example, dancers circling a bride and groom may move to the left and then to the right. The circle represents infinity, while the shifting directions represent the vagaries of life and fortune.
