Easter is traditionally regarded as the most important of Christian holy days, and Easter in Armenia is celebrated with a public holiday on the day after Easter Sunday.

The date of the holiday changes each year based on the centuries-old calculations that determine the Christian Ecclesiastical Calendar. This means that the date of Easter Sunday can be anytime between 22 March and 25 April.
On Easter Sunday, many attend mass in their local Armenian Apostolic Church, then go home to enjoy the Easter table with their families. Artistically painted Easter eggs, buttery rice mixed up with cooked dried fruits, some form of fish dish, and an assortment of raw and cooked greens form the main meal. And there are several types of traditional Armenian Easter bread to choose from as well.
