April 11th holiday

APRIL 11th

On this day each year, cross inscribed loaves of bread are traditionally baked in honor of the Roman Goddess Diana.

In Greece, branches of evergreen, myrtle or bay were worn by children on this day for protection against the venomous evil eye.

In Armenia, the Goddess Anahit, is honored annually on this day with a sacred festival. She is a deity of both love and lunar power, who dwells within the silver light of the moon.
