There is no article this week from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com because this is the week of Ayyám-i-Há and I'm busy with preparing and wrapping gifts, party planning, and treating a very sore back that means I can't sit for very long. Can you imagine me without my hours of computer time? And knitting? Wow, neither can I!
However, I can point you to several articles about the Intercalary Days, in case you would like to know more about the Bahá'í Calendar and this special time of year.
1. Ayyám-i-Há is coming!
This is the season for parties for many Bahá'ís, prior to the Fasting month, which is followed by a another party celebrating New Year's Day, March 21.
2. Is Ayyám-i-Há Bahá'í Christmas?
So what exactly is Ayyám-i-Há, and how is it different from Christmas?
3. What if You're Invited to an Ayyám-i-Há Party?
What should you expect if you attend a celebration of Ayyám-i-Há?
