How to Reply to Happy Easter Wishes

Sometimes people will send Happy Easter wishes to friends, coworkers, and loved ones who do not celebrate the holiday. For Christians, part of the Easter celebration is bonding with their community. When they reach out in this way, it's often a way of expressing goodwill and letting you know that they're thinking of you.

However, there are some people who don't celebrate and who would rather not disclose their beliefs or religious identity. In this case, a simple response can suffice, such as sending greetings to their family and wishing them a lovely celebration.

Thanks, Happy Easter to you too!

Thanks for the greeting. Would love to see you this Spring!
