Photolog: Ayyam-i-Ha!

Ayyam-i-Ha is a special time of year--days outside of time--when Baha'is prepare for our 19 day Fast, which begins tomorrow. You can read more about it here, here, and even here. It is a time not only of gift-giving and celebration, but one in which we dedicate special time to serve others (more so than normal) and offer charity. We donated to our favorite NGO of the year (and you can too if you want to be cool like us, because these people are the real deal), gave to needy individuals, offered gifts and general glee to our friends, and even had a small get together. Tomorrow, we are headed to the local Baha'i Center where we will do some much needed cleaning and organization (plus we owe them) in service to our community. As tomorrow will, no doubt, result in some hilarity to be shared here, please enjoy a small compilation of our Ayyam-i-Ha festivities, most of which, don't need explanation:

This goddess of the kitchen made apple and pumpkin pies.

We made a tactile box of sorts (loads of colored rice & containers inside the better half of an old suitcase)

Max serves some of our guests.
Pictionary is something somewhat new to this artist. Can you guess what she drew? Neither could we.
Mandatory dominoes. Otherwise, it just ain't Dominican.
We hope you had a wonderful Ayyam-i-Ha! We'll be thinking of you all tomorrow morning as we begin our Fast.
