Originating Calendar
Religious Observances

The Bahá’í calendar is a lunar calendar consisting of nineteen months, each containing 19 days. The calendar marks each date beginning at sunset and ending at sunset the last day. At the beginning of each Bahá'í month, Bahá'ís gather for an observance called the 19-Day Feast. It is a three-part observance with devotions, community consultation, and a social portion. While the 19-Day Feast is not an observance where work and school must be suspended, attendance is strongly encouraged. Some students or employees may request schedule adjustments in order to observe.
