YEREVAN. – People in Armenia have stopped focusing on the lavishness of the New Year’s tables and they try to avoid unnecessary spending, said dietitian Vardanush Petrosyan, at a press conference on Wednesday.
In her view, this is largely due to the dire socioeconomic present-day situation in the country.
“Not everyone [in Armenia] can afford a lavish New Year’s table,” said Petrosyan. “But if the [respective] desire is so great, I know cases when some go to the bank and take a special loan for that.”
