Easter, Passover and Ramadan

It is a rare occurrence to have major holidays from three of the world’s leading religions to fall at the same time. Yet that is what has happened this year. This Friday, Christians commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus, and on Sunday celebrate Easter, marking their belief in his resurrection. On Friday, Jewish people celebrate the eve of Pesach, commonly called Passover, which commemorates the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and the end of their slavery. And this weekend as well, Muslims around the world mark another Friday, their weekly holiday, within the month of Ramadan, which began on April 2 and ends on May 2. This coincidence of dates is unusual, especially as far as the proximity of the Islamic Ramadan to the Christian Lent or to the dates of Pesach and Easter is concerned.

Whether you celebrate this holiday

or this holiday

or this holiday

Celebrate with family, friends and loved ones. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
