Religious Observances

The Baha’i New Year’s Day coxincides with the spring equinox. Naw-Rúz is an ancient Persian festival celebrating the “new day” and for Bahá'is it marks the end of the annual 19-Day Fast and is one of the nine holy days of the year when work is suspended and children are exempted from attending school. Some students or employees may request schedule adjustments in order to observe. As with other Bahá'í months, a 19-Day Feast observance occurs on the first day of the month. Begins at sunset of the first day and ends at sunset of the last day.
