10 WAYS TO HELP ARTSAKH

10 Ways to help Artsakh #ArtsakhStong

1. Send money. The NKR government has opened an account for displaced families (ArtsakhBank; Address: Kievyan 3, Yerevan, Armenia; SWIFT: ARTSAM22, Account number: 22300110153200; more details onhttp://gov.nkr.am/en/official-news/item/2016/04/04/state/).

2. Take action on www.anca.org/StopAliyev. US citizens and residents can send a strong message for peace to the White House, Congress, and international negotiators by taking this simple action.

3. Plan a trip to Artsakh. Undo Azerbaijan’s goal of portraying Artsakh as unsafe by making it your next holiday destination (here are 10 other reasons why http://asbarez.com/143895/10-reasons-to-visit-artsakh/).

4. Urge fair coverage. Contact media outlets and urge accurate reporting. Media outlets have irresponsibly reported Azerbaijan’s absurd declaration of “uniltareal ceasefire.” They should instead consult direct information fromhttp://www.nkr.am/en/.

5. Call for accountability. Ask Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and other human rights organizations to document and denounce the April 2, 2016 Talish war crimes by Azerbaijan’s army, during which an Armenian couple was executed and had their ears chopped off (source: (http://hetq.am/…/azerbaijani-soldiers-execute-elderly-armen…)

6. Organize protests. Peaceful and pro-peace protests should be organized in front of Azerbaijani embassies and consulates, or local government buildings.

7. Condemn pro-Baku activities. If your governor or legislature has expressed support for Azerbaijan (by issuing a statement or proclamation), or a company headquartered in your city has signed a contract with Azerbaijan, protest the cooperation and explain that it has emboldened a bloody dictatorship to commit more crimes.

8. Use social media to express your support for Artsakh by using tags of‪#‎NKpeace‬, ‪#‎KarabakhNow‬, ‪#‎StopAliyev‬, and ‪#‎ArtsakhStrong‬.

9. Support nonprofits that support Artsakh.

10. Share this blog post to raise awareness 12928118_10153525241398201_1914753000622044020_n

Armenian Genocide did happen

Google Translate , Seriously?

It was really weird  when you Google translated the Armenian sentence “I love Armenians” (“Ես սիրում եմ հայերին”) to English it translated “I love Turkey”  

Google Translate

 

Now who to blame Google or ?

and after the reactions of the international Armenian community Google corrected the translation and provided the correct translation …

Well Google should have some explanation on the subject because  me personally I don’t know how Google translate works and if this is a wrong translation then i am sure there is more as well regarding to topics sensitive like this one.me

meanwhile  this went viral in Turkey 

here are some links for Online magazines from Turkey talking about it 

 

 

 

Thanks for my friend Serouje for the provided photo and the links

 

Why Do Armenians Celebrate Christmas on January 6th?

I wanted to write this post because people around me started already asking why Armenians do not celebrate Christmas on December 25th with the rest of the world. So I thought it would be easier for me to just send them the link 😀

Untill the 4th century Christians around the world used January 6 to celebrate the birth of Jesus. “According to Roman Catholic sources, the date was changed from January 6th to December 25th in order to override a pagan feast dedicated to the birth of the Sun which was celebrated on December 25th ,  Armenian Church was not a satellite of the Roman Church. Thus, remaining faithful to the traditions of their forefathers, Armenians have continued to celebrate Christmas on January 6th until today.

On Christmas eve and the morning, Armenians greet each other with Christmas Greetings. However, Merry Christmas in Armenian is translated as Kristos tsnav eev haitnetsav, Orhneal e haitnutune Kristosee. Which means Christ is born and revealed, Blessed is the revelation of Christ and Santa Clause Gaghant Babatraditionally comes on New Year’s Eve (December 31st) because Christmas Day itself is thought of as more of a religious holiday in Armenia 🙂

I can’t wait to Celebrate and eat all the yummy Christmas food with my family and friends
