Armenian Matches In 1,700th Commemorative Casing

While in Armenia in 2001 during the 1,700th Anniversary of Armenia becoming the first Christian nation in 301 AD, I was able to pick up a souvineer to bring back with me to the US. It was a commemorative case that held 40 boxes of matches with Armenian Churches and Locations on both sides of the box.

My Trip To Armenia 2001: St. Gregory’s Pit at Khor Virap

One of the greatest places that I visited on my trip was Khor Virap which was the “home” of St. Gregory the illuminator for 13 years as he was imprisoned in a pit by the king for being Christian.
