Happy Baha'i Christmas!

We of course do not celebrate Christmas in the traditional sense, but we thought you should know our Baha'i children had plenty to play with on Christmas morning...

While grocery shopping last week, an employee wished Samaya a 'Merry Christmas!' Without skipping a beat, she said, "Merry Christmas! We're Baha'is!" I thought she summed up our stance quite perfectly: although we do not celebrate, we are happy to share in the spirit of joy and generosity that permeates the season. 

And read Great Joy. This book makes me cry every. single. time.  

If you're interested in a more thorough explanation of the Baha'i stance on Christmas, this blog post does a lovely job.
