Happy Ayyam-i-Ha!

Today is the first day of the Bahá’í holidays of Ayyám-i-Há! It runs from February 25th until March first.

Literally in Arabic, “Days of Há” (“Há” being a letter with the numerical value of five), are intercalary days — meaning days that fall outside the Bahá’í calendar year of 19 months, each of 19 days. They’re a special time for hospitality, feasting, charity, gift giving and spiritual preparation for the month of fasting to follow.

We have a lot of fun things planned over these four days, including cookie baking, puzzles, and a trail clean-up with my three-year-old nephew.

Help us kick off the festivities by downloading and coloring this page I drew for the Ayyám-i-Há party!
