ARMENIAN PRESS DAY

On October 16, the Armenian Press Day was celebrated. The professional holiday was established by a governmental decree in 2004 replacing the Day of the Press Worker. The new holiday was scheduled to celebrate the issuance of the first Armenian periodical – the newspaper “Azdarar” – in the Indian town of Madras on October 16, 1794 (see YPC Weekly Newsletter, October 8-14, 2004).
