Armenian parents celebrate ‘Agra Hadig.’ This takes place once a child cuts their first tooth. When this happens, parents prop a baby up and surround the child with a selection of objects. Stethoscope. Calculator. Hammer toy. Paint brush. The options are endless. The choices are typically limited to five, and whatever the baby handles first is supposed to tell what the future holds for him/her. Is she going to be an artist, reaching for the paint brush? Will he be a banker since he chose the dollar bill? After the baby makes the pivotal choice, the family generally throws a party with a big meal to celebrate the milestone.
