February 12 2011 Baha'i Newsletter


Here's the first of two articles on Ayym-i-H, the Intercalary Days, from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com.

Is Ayym-i-H Bah' Christmas?
So what exactly is Ayym-i-H, and how is it different from Christmas?

It gives a bit of the theology behind these days, as well as the importance of how we frame our understanding of what could otherwise be just another excuse for a party. (I have nothing against parties, LOL, but if we think about why we enjoy them, and what the underlying motivations for giving a party might be, it changes our perspective from hedonism to altruism. And perspective is everything!)

There are very few rituals in the Bah' Faith, as it's Prophet/Founder -Bah'u'llh- did not give many, and it is too young a religion to have developed them. Therefore, celebrations reflect the cultures and tastes of the Believers, which are as varied as flowers in a garden! Next week's article will give some examples of how Bah's observe these days, and how some families use them to help their children build a spiritual identity.

Do stop by bahai.bellaonline.com for more about the Baha'i Faith and its community of Believers.

Or come by the forum and share how you and your family celebrate and build the spirit -
