Bahá’í Faith Holidays

The Bahá’í calendar, known as the Badí‘ calendar, was introduced by the Báb. Bahá’u’lláh confirmed and adopted this calendar, fixing its commencement at the year of the Báb’s declaration in 1844.

Bahá’í calendar consists of 19 months of 19 days each, with the addition of 4-5 intercalary days known as Ayyám-i-Há.

During the course of a year, the followers of the Bahá’í Faith celebrate and commemorate a total of nine Holy Days, during which Bahá’ís try to take a day off from work and / or studies. In the Gregorian calendar, these Holy Days take place on a slightly different day each year. In addition to the Holy Days, the multifaith calendar shows the date of the Holy Days according to the Bahá’í calendar.
