Naw Ruz marks the end of the Fast and the beginning of a new year in the Baha’i calendar. Naw-Ruz is a celebration of a “spiritual springtime” that symbolizes both individual renewal and mankind’s revitalization.
Ayyam-i-Ha is a Baha’i festival that is joyously celebrated in countries and territories all over the world. It is a time of hospitality, generosity, and caring for the needy. It typically falls around the end of February and beginning of March and it is either four or five days long.
With Ayyam-i-Ha almost upon us, we’d like to invite you to join our first ever Ayyam-i-Ha bakeoff! You can join from anywhere around Australia, or the world! All you need to do is:
Create your Ayyam-i-Ha treat
Take photos and write out the recipe
Send in the photos and the recipe so we can publish them
Share your treat with those around you!
Have a great Ayyam-i-Ha!
What makes an Ayyam-i-Ha treat?
It can be whatever you want it to be! It can have a Baha’i theme to it (think nine-pointed star cookies), or just be a great recipe you like to make for the family at this time of year. The most important thing is to share it with love!
We’re looking for portrait/vertical photos–or video! Make sure you have at least one photo of the finished creation, and ideally one photo of it with you somewhere in the photo, but don’t worry if you’re shy, you can skip that! Bonus points if you have the energy to send in a photo or video guide to the recipe, that’s even better — but no pressure!
How to send it all in …
Email [email protected] the photos and recipe. And if you have a video (or other big files), then use wetransfer.com (a free service for sending big files).
