We have embarked upon the Festival of Ayyam-i-Ha which is a special time of gift giving, charity, hospitality and celebration for Baha’is all over the world. During these precious few days, I try and think of a small gift that I can share to make friends and family feel special. Today I thought of something I never have before! I decided to compose a song… not just any song but one especially on the theme of Ayyam-i-Ha!
I’ve been singing the same Ayyam-i-Ha song for my children for the last decade and I felt it was time for a change. So in haste, I quickly jotted down some thoughts on what this festival means to me and the melody came in an instant! The lyrics are below and I’m sharing a video of the song too so you can hear the melody. It’s simple, short and easy to sing so if it appeals to you, please feel free to teach it to your friends too.
