Armenia Motherhood and Beauty Day

This is a national holiday in Armenia, celebrated each year on April 7. It comes not long after another national holiday, Women's Day, which is celebrated on March 8. Women's Day is meant to honor all women, but Motherhood and Beauty Day is dedicated especially to those who have become mothers.

According to the Holy Bible, it was on April 7 that the guardian angels gave the Virgin Mary the Good News that she will give birth to Jesus Christ in nine months.

For centuries, April 7 is marked in Armenia and the Armenian Diaspora as Women’s, Motherhood, Beauty, and Spring Day.

On this day Armenian men give presents to their mothers, sisters, wives, and girlfriends.

I haven't heard of the feminist movement being opposed to any celebration of Motherhood although they may possibly take offence to the 'Beauty Day' part of the occasion!

I was thinking that some feminists might not like women to be seen as "breeders" of the human race.

monamagda said "According to the Holy Bible, it was on April 7 that the guardian angels gave the Virgin Mary the Good News that she will give birth to Jesus Christ in nine months." Where in the Bible does it say on april 7 Mary was visited by the guardian angel?
