Feasts
For me Feasts are one of the most important Baha'i events, it is an occasion not only for the Baha'i Community to come together and share their praise of God but to commune with each other in the spirit of Love, Learning and Life.

This page will link you to some suggested readings (quotes and sources) for each feast. The quotes are ones that I have searched for, they are arbitrary and are most certainly not the only quotes that apply. I just thought this would be a good place to start and a place to share with those who might be having some trouble getting started with their research and readings. So feel free to use these pages if you are in need of some ideas for your feasts.

The Baha'i Calendar, also called the Badi calendar was established by the Bab in the Kitab-i-Asma and approved by Baha'u'llah, who stated that it should start in 1844 AD (AH1260).
The names of the months in the Baha'i (Badi) calendar were given by the Bab,
who drew them from the nineteen names of God invoked in a prayer said during the month of fasting in Shi'ih Islam. They are:
