Bahá’ís End Fasting Month & Celebrate Naw-Rúz, the New Year

What a wonderful way to observe the Spring and Autumn equinoxes in the northern and southern hemispheres! Bahá’ís around the world have been observing a Bahá’í month of fasting since March 2, not partaking of food or drink between sunrise and sunset. At sunset on March 20, they will complete their fasts and celebrate the holiday of Naw-Rúz, or New Year.

In Arlington, VA, Bahá’ís will gather on Wednesday, March 21, at 3:00 PM in Rocky Run Park for food and celebration, and will walk over a bit later for a short program in close-by Barton Park, where the community donated 2 trees to Arlington County in October 2017, when they celebrated the Bicentennial of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh, the Founder of the Bahá’í Faith.

All are welcome to join us for this celebration and program!
