Hisnag: Armenian Advent in the Armenian Church Tradition

The Advent Season “Christmas”, is also celebrated by the Armenians, like the rest of the Christendom.
It is called “ HISNAG- Յիսնակի ” from the Armenian number “hissun” means fifty (50).

HISNAG (Բարեկենդան Յիսնակի) started last Sunday 19th November, which was the first day of Advent in our calendar, till the sunset on 5th of January when the Armenian church will begin to celebrate Christmas – celebrating the revelation and the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
