What do you say, I wonder, when somebody who is not 'Eid-ing' says Eid Mubarak to you?
The usual response, when someone says 'Eid Mubarak' to you, is to say 'Eid Mubarak' to you too (or-some-such) because it's applicable. But how do you respond when someone who you cannot give Eid Mubarakbaadi in return to wishes you? For example, my community celebrates Eid today, everybody else is waiting for tomorrow (before the haters strike let me remind you we start fasting before everybody else too), so everyone else is not 'Eid-ing' as it were. And what about my non-Muslim friends, what do I say to my Hindu, Christian, Parsi friends when they wish me Eid Mubarak given that I cannot cheerfully pipe 'Eid Mubarak to you too' without sounding suspisiously like Meera on her birthday responding to 'happy birthday' wishes with a rather-paindu-sounding, 'same-to-you, same-to-you'. And the rather obvious 'thank you' seems all wrong somehow... *sigh* semantics are such a nuisance sometimes! :P
