 Encyclopedia Article: The Nineteen Day Feast
The modern form of the feast arose during the ministry of Shoghi Effendi and parallels the rise of the modern local spiritual assembly.
The feast is to consist of three parts: first, devotional, consisting of readings from the Baha'i sacred writings; second, a general community meeting, at which the local spiritual assembly and the community can consult; and third, a social meeting, at which food is served.
Although the three-part format of the feast is observed everywhere in the Baha'i world, there is considerable variation in the details of the programme among countries, communities and even individual hosts, a diversity encouraged by the Universal House of Justice.

 Calendar of saints - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This calendar system, when combined with major church festivals and movable and immovable feasts, constructs a very human and personalised yet often localised way of organising the year and identifying dates.
Many children acquire baptismal or confirmational names from the saint associated with their date of birth, baptism or confirmation, and believing Eastern Orthodox Christians (and in some countries, Roman Catholics) mark the "name day" (namesday) of the saint whose name they bear with special attention, often instead of birthday celebrations.
In the Roman Catholic Church, from most to least importance, these are solemnities, feasts, memorials, and optional memorials.

Pagan feasts in honor of the earth, the coming of spring, the reaping of the harvest, were given a Christian connotation; the ancient fire and water worship of pagan times became the blessing of water and the lighting of fires in Christian worship.
The first feast in February is that of Saint Bridget, known lovingly in her own land as "Mary of the Gael." According to the scholars the name is rightly Brigit, but the common spelling is Bridget, and hers is the name borne by more girls in Ireland than any save one, that of Mary.
For Christians it became the feast of Saint Walburga, the daughter of a Saxon king of the eighth century, who went to Germany at the call of her uncle, Saint Boniface, to aid in the work of evangelizing the Germanic tribes and remained to found and rule monasteries and convents.

 FEAST MANAGEMENT
Feast cost is number of people divided by budget, or another way of looking at it is if you have $250.00 then that works out to $2.50 per person.
If you charge a $5 feast fee than you have about $500.00 to use for the overall feast cost (including rental of hall, food and everything else.) When planning the budget determine what your actual food cost will be after everything else is planned for, this will allow you to plan the menu.
The Feast Manager can be compared to the contemporary restaurateur, except for the fact that the restaurant is not open all the time, no ongoing staff, limited supplies, equipment and the location changes places.

 Books at Random House of Canada | Feast by Nigella Lawson
A feast for both the eyes and the senses, written with Nigella Lawson’s characteristic flair and passion, Feast: Food that Celebrates Life is a major book in the style of her classic How to Eat, applying Nigella’s “Pleasures and Principles of Good Food” to the celebrations and special occasions of life.
Her recipes are rich and motherly and sustaining and sexy, just as she is.

Feast, like so much of Lawson’s work, is a voluptuous and delicious piece of food writing….

 FEAST Projects - Brief Introduction
This is illustrated by, for example, the FEAST use of simulation models to assess the impact of alternative evolution strategies [kah01].
Despite the fact that the systems analysed came from diverse application and implementation domains and that they displayed some differences in the detail of their evolutionary behaviour, the general behaviour was remarkably similar, largely replicating that observed in the 1970s studies [leh85].
The FEAST projects were limited to a study of what could be termed the classical software process as variously practised in industry for the last forty years or so.
