I don't usually send more than one quick newsletter per week from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com, but one of my favorite holidays starts tomorrow. The Intercalary Days will be over before the next newsletter would go out, and I don't want you to miss any of the fun.
To pronounce Ayyám-i-Há, the Persian name for these leftover days in the solar calendar, think of the Japanese motorcycle and add Ah to the beginning, LOL. And if you have been invited to a party, don't worry. It isn't dangerous, and it could be a lot of fun, even if you don't know everyone there! Here are a couple articles to give you an idea what it is all about:
Ayyám-i-Há is Coming!
Is Ayyám-i-Há Bahá'í Christmas?
What to do if You're Invited to an Ayyám-i-Há Party!
What do you think about using a solar calendar? Or celebrating some leftover days therein by thinking of others and giving gifts of service and good cheer? Share your ideas in the free online discussions in the site forum located here -
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback
