Folklore and Armenian Food: Vahagn and Asdghig

Long ago, the god of warriors, Vahagn, was to marry the goddess of love, Asdghig. Te most honourable guest, Aramazt, who was the god of all the gods, placed a white lavash on Asdghig’s shoulder. On the way to the groom’s house, the lavash dropped, but was not noticed by Asdghig in her excitement. This angered Aramazt, who told Asdghig and all who were present that the one who drops the lavash on the ground will not be either wife or mother. The wedding was thus cancelled and the two could not marry, remaining lovers for all eternity.
