Dear experts, I will appreciate it a lot if you could check the following text:

"Intermarriages are not common due to the conflict between Christianity and Islam. Nevertheless, no outrages have been committed on Muslims by Christians, nor vice versa. Moreover, in villages inhabited by both Bulgarians and Turks, it is natural for a Bulgarian to give a treat to their Turkish neighbor on Easter – the greatest Christian holiday - and for the Turkish to do the same on Ramadan. "

It is good as is. These are suggestions for readability.

A minor point.

Shouldn't it be the Turk instead of the Turkish?
