    You did fine!
    You can also locate Baha’is near where you live and attend the observance as a non-Baha’i!

    “Today, Baha'is in 188 countries worldwide celebrate the Birth of Siyyid Ali-Muhammad, the Herald of our Faith, whom we know as the Bab, a title that means both “Door” and “Gate” in Arabic. The first of the two Manifestations of God — Prophets — of our faith, the Bab was born in 1819 in Persia, today's Iran.”

    Thanks for the invitation!

    This year, we have a very unfortunate overlap in the date of this happy occasion with a very sad one. Nov 9 is a memorial day for the terrible religious persecutions that took place in Germany, 80 years ago, the "Empire's Pogrom Night" ("Reichspogromnacht").

    Here's to religious tolerance and peace on Earth, then!
