Armenia celebrates 22nd birthday

Today, September 21, 2013, Armenia marks it’s 22nd year as an independent country.

In 1991 Armenia held a referendum on independence in which 95 percent of all the citizens voted for it. A couple of days later, the Armenian Parliament declared Armenia’s independence from the Soviet Union. Since then, September 21 has been celebrated every year as an official holiday.

Happy Armenian Independence Day! Enjoy your day of patriotism.
