Sending holiday greetings to your supporters and community is a great way to let them know you’re thinking of them. But not everyone celebrates the same holidays.
Last night was the first night of Passover. Even the least religious Jewish families likely got together for a festive meal, while the more observant households are getting ready for a second seder tonight and eating a special diet through next Tuesday.
Meanwhile, for Western Christians it is Holy Week, and Easter Sunday is coming up on April 16, 2017. Wiccans celebrated the vernal equinox on March 20 (which was also the Persian New Year, Nowruz) and now look forward to Beltane on May 1.They may be hurt if you wish them A happy holiday, but not theirs.
