Surf City Soroptimists of Huntington Beach wish you and your loved ones a happy healthy Easter, Passover or Ramadan celebration.
Sunday marks the first time in 33 years that the Jewish holiday of Passover, Muslim holiday of Ramadan and Christian holiday of Easter fall on the same date in the calendar.

“Passover is about a feast. Easter Sunday is a feast. And Ramadan even, every night, is a feast. They come together with food,” Rev. Mike Cruickshank, an associate pastor at St. Andrews Cathedral, said. “That is also a celebration with God. We bring ourselves together in community.” (source: msn.com)
