YEREVAN. ?€“ April 7 is Motherhood and Beauty Day in Armenia.
In modern-day Armenia, it is a national but an unofficial holiday, which brings to a close the "women?€™s one month" (March 8-April 7) in Armenia.
According to the Holy Bible, it was on April 7 that the guardian angels gave the Virgin Mary the Good News that she will give birth to Jesus Christ in nine months.
For centuries, April 7 is marked in Armenia and the Armenian Diaspora as Women's, Motherhood, Beauty, and Spring Day.
On this day Armenian men give presents to their mothers, sisters, wives, and girlfriends.
