Significant Dates in the Badi Calendar

Significant Dates in the Baha’i Calendar 175B.E. (2018-19)


The Bahá’í calendar, also called the Badí‘ calendar (badí‘ means wondrous or unique), is a solar calendar with years composed of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days) plus an extra period of “Intercalary Days”. Years begin at Naw-Rúz, on the vernal equinox, coinciding with March 20 or 21.


The first year is dated from 21 March 1844 CE, the year during which the Báb proclaimed his religion. Years are annotated with the date notation of BE (Bahá’í Era),

The year 175 BE started at the moment of the vernal equinox in March 2018, meaning that it falls on 21 March 2018.
