WHY "TWIN?" The "Twin" in Twin Holy Birthdays comes from the fact that The Bahá'í Faith includes TWO Prophets, or Manifestations of God, The Báb, and His Holiness Baha’u’llah, as foretold for "the time of the end" in all the Scriptures.
The Báb was born in 1819 and Baha’u’llah in 1817, so the primary Bicentennial Celebration for Baha’u’llah is in 2017 and the primary celebration for The Báb is in 2019. However BOTH birthdays WILL be celebrated in EACH of these two years, with one primary for each year. Although 2017 is Baha’u’llah's Bicentenary, there WILL be a celebration for The Báb also this year, as well as for Baha’u’llah in 2019.
DETAILS for both celebrations in 2017:The Birth of Báb celebration and proclamation will be on Saturday, October 21st at the Prescott Valley Library – Crystal Room on the third floor, 7401 E. Civic Circle Drive, from 2-4 p.m., and The Birth of Baha’u’llah, as described above for this year's Bicentennial, will be the next day (Sunday) at LaQuinta Inn, October 22nd, from 1:15 to 3:30 PM.
