Ayyám-i-Há, because it’s a special period of the year is a festival which  Bahá’ís celebrate God and his oneness and by showing love, fellowship and unity, hospitality, holding social events, and the giving of gifts.

 ”Ayyám-i-Há” means literally the “Days of Joy” , and in the Bahá’í calendar they form the intercalary days that fill out the 365 or 366 days of the solar year. The Bahá’í calendar consists of 19 months of 19 days each, giving 361 days, requiring the addition of four or five more days.The calendar was established by the Báb, the prophet who was the forerunner of the Founder of the Baha’i Faith, Bahá’u'lláh . But it was Bahá’u'lláh who specified that the Days of Há  should be inserted in the calendar just before the month of fasting which begins on the 1st of March this year.

Bahá’u'lláh  said of Ayyám-i-Há : “It behoveth the people of Bahá, 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.”
