    Default Which group do the Armenians feel more connected w: other christians, Jews or muslims

    I am wondering this because from experience i have noticed the Armenians in my town get along with the Jews more often than with other Christians. Also i have noticed that they eat Muslim food.

    Which group do the Armenians feel more connected with: other Christians, Jews or Muslims?

    Thanks

    I think he means in the religious sense but I think they would be closer to Christians since they are Christians.

    makes sense, what about when they are alone or in a small group.

    Yes, they are Christian but they are very different than other Christians because they celebrate Christmas day on 7 June. Also they are more middle eastern in traditions that other Christians.
    When i was a kid i used to think they were a branch of the Judaism. No offence, i was a kid then.

    Armenians celebrate Christmas on 3 different days depending where they reside.
    Armenian Christmas is January 6. Diaspora Armenians celebrate December 25 and January 6. Armenians in Bethlehem celebrate Christmas 3rd week in January (January 18).

    I'm curious, is it customary for Armenian Christians to eat pork, or do they tend to avoid it? I ask because in places where they are a minority among Jews and/or Muslims, I would expect them to not eat it much, due to lack of availability and/or social pressures. I have seen a similar phenomenon among Indian Muslims and Christians with beef.

    From what I've noticed Armenians feel close to many West Asian ethnicities as well as Greeks.
    “Ashur lived at the city of Nineve; and named his subjects Assyrians, who became the most fortunate nation, beyond others” (Antiquities, i, vi, 4): Flavius Josephus

    “It is impossible for me and my people to surrender after seeing the atrocities done to my Assyrian people by your government; therefore my brother is one, my people are many, I would rather lose my brother but not my nation”
    - Mar Shimun XXI Benyamin, Catholicos Patriarch of the
    Assyrian Church of the East 1887 - 1918
