According to the Canon of the Armenian Apostolic Church the celebration of the holiday starts from evening of February 13th and continues up until the evening of February 14th. This holiday celebrates the day when 40- day-old Jesus was donated to the Church and this is when he was given the name Jesus (Luke: A31). That is why the holiday is called Tearn Yndarach, which literally means Heading Towards God!
Today we celebrate it by jumping over the fire. This tradition reflects the Biblical scene when people greeted 40-day-old Jesus with burning torches, and it is not to be associated with pagan fire. However, above all, this holiday, as all the other holidays of the church comes once again to remind us about important Christian beliefs and traditions and summons each person to come to the church and to be closer to God!
