"To Susanna Petrie - Re: Lunar Sabbath and the Passover"

Yes, that’s exactly what the Creation Calendar website says.  Nisan 16th is always the day after the Sabbath (first day of the week) and therefore Firsfruits.

[By the way, “3 days” or “3 days and 3 nights” in ancient Hebrew usage doesn’t mean 72 hours like we mean nowadays, it just means any set of 3 consecutive days, be them complete or incomplete. So Nisan 14th is day # 1 (even if the event took place in the last minutes of Day # 1), Nisan 15th is day # 2 , Nisan 16 is day # 3. That method of referring to blocks of time is also known as “inclusive reckoning”.]
 

Creation Calendar website also says that Pentecost falls on the 29th day of the 4th Hebrew month (later named “Tammuz”), which in 2011 falls on July 31st.
 

Blessings,
