Days of Ayam-i-Ha (Deliver days) (24/02)

Days of Ayam-i-Ha (Ayyám-i-Há, Plug days) are days of celebration, fun, hospitality and charity. The Bahá'ís have their own calendar, founded by the Báb and approved by the founder of the Bahá'í Faith, Bahá'u'lláh.

According to this calendar, the Baha'i year is divided into 19 months of 19 days each. The 4 or 5 days missing before the solar year are placed before the last month of the year and bear the name of Ayam-i-Ha - intercalary days, days of celebration, fun and hospitality. They begin in the evening after sunset on February 24 or 25 and end at sunset on February 28 or 29.

Ayam-i-Ha literally means "days of Ha". “Kha” is the letter in Arabic corresponding to the Russian “X”, and one of the three Arabic letters that make up the word “Baha”. Both the Báb and Bahá'u'lláh followed the Arabic tradition in which each letter was assigned a corresponding numerical value, and both numbers and letters were given a spiritual meaning.
