Greeting non-mahrams on Eid Day

Q: Is it permissible to greet or wish a non-mehram on EID? 

A: Non-mahrams should not greet each other nor speak to each other, neither on the occasion of eid nor on any other occasion. Instead, they should observe purdah amongst themselves.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
