Trndez

Candlemas, or Trndez, is a feast of purification for the Armenian Apostolic Church and Armenian Catholic Churches, marking 40 days after Jesus's birth. The celebration of the Trndez is zoroastrian in origin and is said to predate the worship in ancient pre-Christian Armenia. The main ceremony features a bonfire, symbolizing the coming of spring, complete with songs and dances until the fire dies down.
