On December 18th, the Armenian Church celebrated the feast day of St. James Nisibis ("Soorp Hagop Mudzpunah" in Armenian.)  There is a nice video showing how it was celebrated in Armenia, including the veneration of his relics. ("Masoonk" is relic in Armenian.):

In the above video, you can see icons depicting how this saint received a piece of Noah's ark from an angel.  This wood from Noah's ark is still kept as a valuable relic in Armenia:
