This relatively new holiday celebrates the ratification of the Armenian constitution on July 5, 1995. After the fall of the Soviet Union, a draft of the constitution was presented to the government and political parties in 1992, but, due to opposition, it wasn’t until 1995 that Armenia managed to put to referendum a new constitution.
A fun summer holiday, Vardavar features people splashing each other with water throughout the country.
