Ninth Day of Ridvan (Baha'i)

The annual Baha'i festival of Ridvan commemorates the 12 days (April 21-May 2, 1863) when Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i Faith, resided in a garden called Ridvan (Paradise) in Baghdad, Iraq. At this time He publicly proclaimed His mission as God's messenger for this age. The first (April 21), ninth (April 29), and twelfth (May 2) days are celebrated as holy days when works is suspended.
