Of course, in many families, not all celebrations are carried out according to custom, and not all weddings follow all the traditions described. Old ways are replaced with new ones and modern conveniences offer shortcuts not taken in the past.
However, the maintenance of traditions is a topic of much discussion among families in both Armenia and the Diaspora. Many Armenians feel they must maintain traditions because those families who survived the genocide are obligated to preserve as much of Armenian culture as possible. This heightened sense of awareness is prevalent even among young people, whom the media has exposed to more foreign cultures than any other generation in the past.
Most young people feel privileged to have so many time-honored traditions. Family, culture, and the customs of their past have given them a source of belonging and pride that many of their non-Armenian friends seem to have lost.
