let’s get together!!!!!!
just let me know that you’re ARMENIAN!!!!
If you know any man named Sarkis, this is saint he is named for.
Along with being martyred for the sake of Christ, St. Sarkis became especially significant to Armenian Christianity in folk culture and traditions. St. Sarkis is the patron saint of young people, particularly those in love, or who wish to be in love.
Several particularly adorable traditions include eating only salty cookies the day before the feast day. If the young person sees their future bride or groom in their dreams, it is a miracle from St. Sarkis. Another tradition includes placing a tray or pot of gruel on one’s doorstep, and hoping that St. Sarkis leaves a footprint in the gruel, a sign that their hopes and dreams will be fulfilled.
Similarly to the Western Valentine’s Day, people will give each other cards, flowers or candy in celebration of St. Sarkis Day.
