Surprisingly, it is not often when Easter Sunday, the eight days of Passover, and the month of Ramadan all overlap.
- Easter: April 17th
- Passover: April 15th--23rd
- Ramadan: April 2nd--May 2nd
I ran across this quote from Ben Irwin on Preemptive Love's website that sums it up beautifully:
"Human diversity is a lot like biodiversity: once it’s lost, it’s gone. And we may not realize how much we need it until it’s too late."
May we all take this spirit of diversity and carry it throughout the entire month of April... if not the entire year. Whether you are feasting for Easter to celebrate the end of your 40 days of Lent, fasting for Ramadan to celebrate during Eid al-Fatr, or fasting from leavened grains yet feasting in other ways during your Passover seder, may your holiday be one filled with love, family, and joy.
