Awesome Ayyam-i-Ha Ideas on Pinterest

Ayyam-i-Ha is coming up, and it’s important to make our holy days special. Luckily, there’s a lot of fun ideas out there online which can help us celebrate the intercalary days, and one of the places worth checking out online if you’re short of ideas or need some inspiration is Pinterest.

Pinterest is an online group board and it’s a great place for people to share their ideas, recipes, images, gifts and decorations for pretty much anything! Users not only submit (or rather ‘pin’) photos of what interests them onto their pinboards, but they can browse other pinboards and ‘re-pin’ the photos to their own page.

A few Baha’is have uploaded their own Ayyam-i-Ha ideas to their pin-boards which are really worth checking out, so here are some examples:

So we hope these ideas on Pinterest help you with your Ayyam-i-Ha celebrations, and remember to have fun, but most of all remember to show love, fellowship and unity.

It behoveth the people of Baha, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name; and when they end—these days of giving that precede the season of restraint—let them enter upon the Fast.

  1. Growing up in my home, Ayyam-i-ha involved gift-giving and my parents set up scavenger hunts for us to find them. When we got older, there were still presents but we also began to focus more on doing things for others – making treats or serving in different ways. It’s still one of my favorite times of year.

  2. We decorate with camels! Plush camels, paper mache camels, ceramic camels. Our collection has reached 26! A caravan of camels is stationed all over the house to greet friends and family. This year I posted photos of all of them on Facebook on the Largest Baha’i Facebook Page Ever page, so you can see them there!
    We also have 9-pointed stars on the walls and a garland of them made from pipe cleaners. I can teach folks how to make them. So much fun!
