Question:

Does one sit shiva on Chol ha-Moed Pesach?

Answer:

No. Yom Tov, including the days of Chol ha-Moed, interrupt a shiva, and one does not sit shiva on Chol ha-Moed.

If the burial is before the festival, the festival interrupts and effectively stops the shiva; if the burial is on Chol ha-Moed, the shiva begins after the festival.

Best wishes.
