Today Christmas is celebrated in the Armenian Church, the earliest of Christian churches. We never celebrated Armenian Christmas as children, as we were brought up in an Armenian Protestant Church, and for us, Christmas was always December 25. But Uncle Paul would always remind us, on January 6, of the proper greeting and the proper response.
Քրիստոս ծնաւ եւ յայտնեցաւ Krisdos dznav yev haydnetsav (Christ is born and revealed to us)
Օրհնեալ է յայտնութիւնը Քրիստոսի Orhnyal e haydnutyunu Krisdosi (Blessed is the revelation of Christ)
True to children, however, we would confuse the response at Easter (Orhnyal e haroutioun Krisdosi) with the response at Christmas (Orhnyal e haydnutyunu Krisdosi) and end up in gales of laughter when Uncle Paul would gently remind us that we had just blessed the resurrection of Christ (Haroutioun Krisdosi) when Christ had only just been born (Haydnutyun Krisdosi)!
