Tomorrow marks the passing of 25 days since the 25th of December. During that time we have seen the trees recycled, the ornaments and decorations stashed away for another year, and, in the aftermath of all those holiday feasts, the diets started. That said, for some it may seem strange to be reading about a recent Christmas party; although it makes perfect sense for those of the Armenian community who celebrate Christmas on Jan. 6. — the traditional date of the Christian celebration of Christ’s birth that was changed by the Romans in the fourth century.
Maintaining their long-standing tradition, the Armenian National Committee of Burbank (ANC) once again opened the doors of their downtown offices for their annual Christmas dinner celebration on Jan. 9. Welcomed by the organization’s chairwoman, Silva Kechichian and members of her newly formed board — Annette Kargodorian, Houri Tavitian, Maral Yessayan and Joseph Hovanessian — guests enjoyed a traditional Armenian feast and were updated on the work of the local ANC chapter that was established in Burbank in 1990.
