The Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days
The Bahá’í calendar, also referred to as Badi calendar is consists of 19 months of 19 days. All months are named after the attributes of God, as well as each of the days. The remaining 4 days, or 5 days in a leap year are marked as Intercalary Days or Ayyam-i-Ha. These days are devoted to good cheer, hospitality and giving—in preparation to the 19 days of Fasting before the Bahá’í new year or Naw-ruz.
