Winter Holiday Cultural Celebration at GSU on November 16, 2011

The Winter Holiday Cultural Celebration sponsored by the University Multicultural Student Center took place on November 16, 2011 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm in the Russell Union at Georgia Southern University. Please click below for additional information and photos of the event.

Various religious and cultural groups exhibited information about their winter holidays and beliefs. The Bahá'í winter holiday of Ayyam-i-Ha is a three-day period, February 26 to March 1, of gift giving and charitable acts, which precedes the Bahá'í 19-day fast. Joe Goldstein and Dan Rea had an opportunity to talk with many students, 26 of whom signed our guest list and showed interest in learning more about the Bahá'í Faith. We gave away several Bahá'í pamphlets, buttons, and lollipops. Special thanks are extended to Austin Tadlock for helping to set up the Bahá'í table and for explaining the Bahá'í Faith to student seekers like himself. “O My brother! When a true seeker determineth to take the step of search in the path leading unto the knowledge of the Ancient of Days, he must, before all else, cleanse his heart, which is the seat of the revelation of the inner mysteries of God, from the obscuring dust of all acquired knowledge…” – Bahá’u’lláh.
