Faith festivals - guidance on sending greetings

A document with guidance about the most appropriate festivals on which to send greetings to people of different faiths, and the form of greeting to use.

In the UK today a range of festivals are celebrated by different faith communities, and greetings are sent for many of them.

The Inter Faith Network office often receives enquiries about the most appropriate festivals on which to send greetings and the form of greeting to use.   The document below has been produced with the IFN’s Faith Communities Forum which brings together National Faith Community Representative Bodies in IFN membership. 

Each faith community has many different festivals but has chosen two festivals on which greetings from those of other faiths and none would be particularly appreciated.  These are  included in a table with greetings that the faith communities bodies suggest.

Full listings of this year's religious festivals can be found here.
