Sunday marked days of celebration for followers of multiple faiths as Christians across Southern California and the world observed Easter and Jews celebrated the end of the Passover holiday. And for members of the Muslim faith, the start of Ramadan is just around the corner on April 12th. Despite more and more people being vaccinated, these religious holidays, all of which are rooted in gathering together with family, friends and fellow worshippers, still happened in the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. And while there is likely less apprehension about gathering to celebrate the holidays this year, Easter, Passover and Ramadan celebrations in 2021 may still look a little different than before the pandemic.
