The Bahá’í community of Sammamish will celebrate their New Year, called Naw-Ruz, at 3:30 p.m., on Sunday, March 21, at the Sammamish Library. The public is invited to join in the celebration, listen to wonderful Bahá’í music, learn more about the tradition of Naw-Ruz, and enjoy delicious Persian treats.
The Bahá’í calendar consists of 19 months of 19 days each. Each month is named for an attribute of God, such as glory, beauty, perfection, justice and mercy. Naw-Ruz comes at the end of 19 days of fasting, during which Bahá’ís abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset.
