IT'S NOT TIME TO PARTY: Evite, the online party invitation website, would seem the least likely website in the world to cause any type of controversy. But cause that it did last week, when Evite had to apologize for accidentally including Yom Kippur on list of "reasons to party" for the fall.
The Eviters write,

We understand and respect that Yom Kippur is a Day of Atonement, a day to be taken seriously to reflect and fast, and as such, one of the most important Jewish Holidays in the year.
Again we deeply apologize for the error and thank you for allowing us to make this correction.

Some will be offended of course, but I just think it's funny. But does this mean I can't count on Evite for my break-the-fast party?
