Ayyam-i-Ha is here!

The season of Ayyam-i-Ha is upon us and it is one of the most festive times of the year for Baha’is. During these days, Baha’is all around the world celebrate Ayyam-i-Ha which is a time of bringing cheer to others, visiting the poor and needy and giving gifts. One of the ways I like to celebrate is by giving Ayyam-i-Ha cards and little gifts to show my love for my friends and family.
Two years ago, during the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha, I composed a song specially for the occasion. You can watch the video and listen to it here. For those of you in China, you can watch the video on youku. I have recorded the song in Chinese as well and the lyrics are below in both languages.  Wishing you a most joyous and blessed Ayyam-i-Ha!
