The 2020 calendar celebrates the 25th anniversary of the publication of our best-selling Gift of Prayers prayerbook. Again, it uses a larger section of the full painting, which was painted on commission by Leslie Williamson. It uses the first line of the “Create in me a pure heart, O my God!” prayer.
We’ve been making these two-year calendars for several years now. We’ve fine-tuned their design to give you the very best in beauty and utility.
More useful: Our calendars include popular American holidays alongside Bahá’í Feasts and Holy Days. You can tell, for example, when Thanksgiving falls in relation to the Day of the Covenant. National holidays, and other important days like Mother’s Day are marked with squares, while Bahá’í Feasts and Holy Days are marked in different colors of circles.
More beautiful: The artwork of Leslie Williamson has graced the covers of our Hidden Words and Gift of Prayers for 25 years, and is one of the many reasons why they are so popular.
Easier to read: This 2-sided calendar displays 12 months on each side, starting in January and ending with December, with months arranged horizontally so you will find them where you expect them to be. The numbers are big and bold, and they change color at the beginning of each Bahá’í month to make it easier to visualize the change of the months in the Bahá’í year. A complete list of all holidays can be found in the right-hand column on BOTH sides, so you don’t need to flip it over to see what Holy Day it is, or whether you should ask to get off of work. The list of holidays is color-coded and listed chronologically for easy reference.
It comes scored and folded in half for easy shipping, unless you choose our new 50-pack, in which case they ship flat. We did two printings. The 50-packs are printed with a satin finish to more closely match the soft texture of the original watercolor painting. Singles and 5-packs are our standard glossy prints. If you order multiple 5-packs, you might get either, depending on which box we use.
