In the ancient times, Armenian women participated in a traditional festivity called "Jan Gyulum". Jan Gyulum is also known as Hampartsoum, a celebration of love and enjoyment, which takes place outdoors in the month of May, 40 days after Easter (referred to as Ascension Day). Following Mary and Harut's surprise romantic engagement, instead of a bridal shower, Mary's family organized a Jan Gyulum to celebrate the bride to be. We spoke with Mary and she provided all the details of this beautiful Armenian tradition and her special day in her interview below.
Q: What is Jan Gyulum?
