The Martyrdom of the Báb

The Báb is a central prophet of the Baha'i faith.

The story the Báb's execution is told, from the perspective of the Baha'i faithful, in this post on Planet Baha'i.

The picture with this post is of the Baha'i Temple in Wilmette, Illinois, just north of Chicago, along Sheridan Road. If you're in the Chicago area, it's a sight well worth seeing in person. (The picture was obtained here).

If this seems too exotic for you, I suppose you could observe National Sugar Cookie Day instead -- but, if you've already done Chocolate Day and Ice Cream Sundae Sunday, you probably need a break from all those sweets, don't you?
