The Baha'i 19-Day Feast

Enhancing the Quality of Feast

Last updated
6 Qudrat 172 B.E.
9 November 2015 C.E.

Many thoughtful people have contributed ideas and experiences to help build this Baha'i 19-Day Feast site. Please feel free to use any of the ideas you find here to enhance the quality of your Feast ... or to write to the webmaster with ideas of your own.

NOTE: As of C.E. 2015, the Badi (Baha'i) Calendar is no longer tied to the Gregorian Calendar. Dates you see here may be very different from dates of previous years. One example is the Universal House of Justice decision to observe the Twin Holy Days on successive dates, i.e., the Birth of Baha'u'llah immediately follows the Birth of the Bab. In years when Naw-Ruz falls on March 20, instead of March 21 as before, all Feast dates will be changed, too.
(I will attempt to keep them up to date as long as I maintain this website.)
