Rastafarians have many days that are celebrated and recognized; 5 days amongst many, which are
considered special and sacred are:
 
Earthday (Earthstrong)
The date in which we are given life to serve our God in the image in which we are created; to serve with all our
mind, heart, and soul.
November 2nd 1930 (2 Tikimt) - Transfiguration Day
This represents the Transfiguration Day of  Negus Ras Tafari to Emperor Haile Selassie I, ‘Might of the Trinity’  
fulfilling
Revelation 5v5, “The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has prevailed.”  This day represents the Holy Day when
Rastafari was acclaimed ‘Negus Negast’ King of kings Emperor of Ethiopia; Fulfilling
Isaiah 43v15;

“I am the Lord Rastafari your Holy One Creator of Israel, your King.”

This day is celebrated quietly with a short Prayer Service (e.g., starting 11am).  Then celebrate with Rasta Music,
rice and peas, vegetables and  fish, closing with a short Prayer of thanksgiving by the Priest with blessing.

The history of Ethiopia for the past half a century has revolved materially around events in which Haile Selassie First
has been the prime mover.  In times of stress, in times of joy, his leadership in resolving the hopes, fears and
aspirations of the Ethiopian people has been distinctive, his guidance indispensable and decisive.  His people and the
world have acclaimed him a fighter not only in defence of the integrity of Ethiopia.  He has been a champion for world
peace and a man whose principles have contributed manfully to the history of his day and age.  His public utterances in
this phase of the national and international drama of peace and war speak by themselves most eloquently.
May 5th (5th of Miyaza) - “Fasika” (Passover)
This day represents a major Holy Day with service.  After service, family day celebration starts with the playing of
Rasta Music (e.g., Reggae) with refreshments, closing with a prayer from the Priest.

...Today is a day on which Ethiopia is stretching her hands to God in joy and thankfulness and revealing her happiness
to her children....  This day, on which the people of Ethiopia are freed from
oppressive foreign yoke and eternal servitude and on which I am enabled to rejoin my people, whom I love and have
longed for, will be honoured as a holiday to be commemorated annually as a Great Ethiopian Anniversary.  On this day
we shall remember those heroic warriors who, determined not to surrender the great charge passed on to them by
their Father, became sacrifices, shedding their blood and breaking their bones for the freedom of the land they loved
and for the honour of their Emperor and their flag.  The history of Ethiopia will be witness for these Our warriors.
July 23rd 1892 (16 Hamle) - 2nd Advent of the Cosmic Christ
Rastalogy accepts this day as the Second Advent of the Cosmic Christ, fulfilling Isaiah Chapter 9 v6, “For unto us a
Child is born, unto us a Son is given, Tafari.”.

This day represents a major Holy Day; celebrated as a family day with a short prayer service giving thanks to
Yahweh, for the birth of His Son, Tafari.  Service starts (e.g., 11am), followed by a celebration consisting of Rasta
Music and food.
October 7th 1928 (7 Maskaram) - Divine Kingship of Rastafari
This day represents a Holy Day.  This is when Rastafari was acclaimed ‘Negus’, King of Ethiopia, fulfilling Isaiah
43v15
, “I am the Lord Rastafari your Holy One, Creator of Israel, your King.”.  The Church of Haile Selassie I
celebrates with short Prayer and Service starting at 11am.
Holy Day Donations
This is an opportunity for all those who believe in the plight of Ethiopians, Africans, Rastafarians, and
conscientious people around the globe, who Love Justice and hate aggression, to pledge their support by donating
to
The Church of Haile Selassie I and the I.E.W.F. in the execution of the Aims and Objectives of the Imperial
Ethiopian World Federation.

We overstand the various financial pressures we face in our daily lives and the numerous worthy causes needing
our financial contributions; therefore we are asking our supporters to "reach out" on each of our Holy Days and
donate (1$, 5$, 10$, 20$, 50$, 100$, 500$+, etc.) whatever we are able to give on one of those days listed above (no
amount is too small).  We hope this relieves some pressure, but still provides specific opportunities throughout
the year to contribute to a cause important to each of us.  
November 2nd 1930 (2 Tikimt) - Transfiguration Day
Thank you! Bless!
We welcome whatever support we receive and ask that JAH richly bless our supporters.

Thank You! JAH Guide and Protect!  
Servant of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I
Bless!
