Men shake hands and sometimes kiss acquaintances. Women hug and kiss Before parting, people say, "Araijem" ("See you later") Armenians address people by their first name. When greeting close friends, they add "-jan" to the end of their name. Gestures Armenians often use their eyes, hands, shoulders and head to be more clear. During conversation eye contact is expected People shake their shoulders to show indifference, but in formal settings such body movements are considered impolite. Chewing gum and putting feet up on furniture is impolite. Visiting Armenians try to greet guests generously. A common saying is, "Any guest is on the top of my head". Flowers are given to the hostess and only in odd numbers (except for funerals when they get an even number). Eating The day's first meal consists of coffee or tea and a pastry.
