As you may know, the Baha’i Faith is an important part of Humani-T history — as the founders of this company are Baha’is, and the North End location is owned by Baha’is.
There are nine days in the Baha’i calendar which Baha’is around the world observe where work is suspended. These days are as follows (please take note that there are a few coming up in late April and May):
pril 21: First Day of Ridván (meaning “Paradise” in Arabic) — the most important of the Bahá’í holy days. It is the day on which Bahá’u’lláh declared His mission as a Messenger of God.
April 29: Ninth Day of Ridván, the day on which Bahá’u’lláh’s family joined Him in the Garden of Ridván.
May 2: Twelfth Day of Ridván the day on which Bahá’u’lláh and His family left the garden to travel to Constantinople.
May 24: Declaration of the Báb the anniversary of the Báb’s announcement of His mission in 1844.
May 29: Ascension of Bahá’u’lláh marking the passing of Bahá’u’lláh in 1892
July 10: Martyrdom of the Báb Who was executed in 1850
