February 26, 2010 – Intercalary Days Celebration in Claremont
The Badi’ calendar is based on the solar year of 365 days, 5 hours, and 50 odd minutes. The year consists of 19 months of 19 days each (i.e. 361 days), with the addition of four extra days (five in a leap year) between the eighteenth and nineteenth months in order to adjust the calendar to the solar year. These four extra days are the Baha’i Intercalary Days.
These Intercalary Days, or “Days of Ha,” occur between the eighteenth and nineteenth months of the Baha’i Calendar (February 26 to March 1 inclusive), and end one day before the Baha’i fast begins. There are four Intercalary Days in ordinary and five in leap years. These are days of preparation for the Fast; days of hospitality, charity, ministering to the poor and sick, the giving of presents.
When: 6:30 pm doors open, 7:00 pm potluck begins, 8:00 the program and celebration begin
Please bring any gently used books that are appropriate for ages 2-15, to the celebration. These books will be given to the children and youth as gifts.
